Emotionally Intelligent Negotiation Workshop

If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” –Sun Tzu The word negotiation often implies there are a winner and a loser. If we don’t win, then we lose.

What do you really know about #caregivers?

Did you know there are more than 40 million Americans caring for a family member or friend? Many of them are working a full-time job (or more) while also dedicating  20-40 hours a week* as a caregiver for a family member, friend or neighbor. There are a lot of assumptions made about who caregivers are and what they do. As a caregiver myself, and through my work with caregiv [...]
