Caught in a work conflict? Not sure what to do?
Today on Conflict Managed, Marlene Chism, seasoned speaker, thought partner, advisor, coach, and author, encourages us to change the narrative in difficult circumstances. Marlene recounts a situation at work where she backed down from what was in her best interest. Convinced “there’s nothing I can do about it now,” she was encouraged to rethink that narrative and be creative. She wasn’t powerless. She could choose to act. Did she? What was the outcome? Listen to find out how one act of courage can change a person’s life.
