Beyond Mars and Venus
January 31, 2017
Hosted by Leaha Mattinson
For more than twenty years, John Gray’s Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus has helped couples deepen their intimacy and rejuvenate their love lives. This landmark book showed that men and women communicate so differently, we might as well be from different planets. By learning to speak each other’s language, millions of people dramatically improved, even saved, their relationships. But the world has changed. As the roles of men and women evolve, relationships must evolve as well. To meet our new needs, we require a new kind of relationship. In this episode Dr. Gray discusses with Leaha and Howard how a complex world has put more demands on both men and women, who are now more free to move beyond the restrictions of traditional gender roles to embrace their authentic selves. But men and women are physically different and appreciating underlying physiology, especially hormones and hormonal regulation, can provide clarity and guidance for both partners in a relationship.

Leaha Mattinson is a change management specialist, life coach, speaker, and author who “walks her talk” in a truly extraordinary way. In 2008 she learned she would someday inherit Huntington’s disease, a genetic, neurological, terminal illness that affects the brain and progressively shuts down the mind and body. It was a devastating diagnosis—yet Leaha realized that to be true to the message she shares with clients she must live her life consciously with enthusiasm, grace and gratitude.
She developed her own wellness protocol to halt the onset of the disease by focusing on nutrition, exercise, restorative sleep, mindfulness and a pervasive sense of reverence for life. But the most crucial attribute of Leaha’s success is her mindset: she embraces passion, happiness, and possibility, and turns all negativity into positive life experiences. She attributes her work ethic and values to the example set by her beloved parents and a childhood growing up on a farm where she was immersed in the rhythms of nature.
Her mission is to share these valuable insights with others. As a life and executive coach, she guides her clients toward self-improvement by helping them resolve underlying fears, interrupt bad habits, and break through barriers in order to achieve their goals. She is also a speaker, addressing topics such as stress management, finding courage, discovering purpose, living in uncertainty, and facing terminal illness.
Leaha shares her own life story in her upcoming book "Silver Linings: How to Be Unstoppable in the Face of a Terminal Illness." Master Your Life is aimed at people who are passionate about wellness, personal growth and self-improvement—those who are eager to bring real change to the way they live and find meaning in a world that’s often brutally stressful and disconnected.
Leaha lives on a ranch west of Red Deer, Alberta with her partner Dwayne, their blended family, a pack of happy dogs, and a herd of horses.
