As I observe myself, clients, and friends right now, it’s intense.  It seems business is challenging, people are facing life defining situations at work and home, teams are efforting to collaborate, and very little seems easy.  We cycle together.   It’s not permanent.  How can we help each other and ask better questions?  What can we… View Article
