A Burning Desire

Sandy Gerber Author Interview

Emotional Magnetism shares your real life experiences along with pragmatic and actional tips readers can use to improve their communication and relationships. Why was this an important book for you to write?

This book took me almost 10 years to research and write (seriously). My journey discovering and creating the Emotional Magnetism communication technique spanned a decade and it was a rollercoaster ride! I’m amazed and grateful every day for the lessons this journey has taught me. My discovery began with a burning desire to evaluate my pattern of failed personal relationships. I had two failed marriages and was raising my two children as a single mompreneur. I knew in my heart, I needed to do work to understand my motivations and needs for a successful, loving relationship. My insatiable curiosity led me to a decade of study, the incredible results I received from the skills and techniques I learned, an extraordinary love story, and fueled my passion to teach others how to easily improve their communication in their relationships.

What is a common misconception you feel people have about communication in relationships?

I think the biggest misconception is that most of us feel we are good at communication in our relationships and think it should be easy. The reality is that typically we have not been trained in communication techniques and likely don’t know how and why we are not being heard and understood at home or work.

What is the first step people must take to improve communication in their relationships?

The first step people must take is to do a reality check on how effective their communication is right now and what is blocking their communication success. There are 16 different types of “communication blockers” we all use and once you are aware of them, you can catch yourself from blocking connection in your relationships. The next important step is to understand what motivates you to listen, what you emotionally need to hear, see, and experience to connect with others. There are four emotional needs that act as the undercurrent of our lives, and one or two of them are your default motivators in all aspects of your life. Identifying your “Emotional Magnet” equips you to understand why you make the choices you do and empowers you to share that with those you care about so they have more empathy and truth in your discussions.

What do you hope is one thing readers take away from your book?

I hope the “Emotional Magnetism” readers become more self-aware of their emotional needs, knowing what truly makes them motivated to listen, act, or engage with others. My intention for the book is to create a “love train”. My philosophy: the more of us there are that want to learn, communicate and share our Emotional Magnets, the more connections we create, the more relationships we nurture and potentially save, and the more love we create in this world.
