Which ideas standout to you? Which ones could you implement today?

Spend 5 minutes now and think through the following questions:

Question 1
A combination of different behavioral styles in one place can sometimes cause some friction. Can you think of three things that you do that you can be more aware of to reduce friction in your household?

Question 2

Question 3
Your needs are just as important as the people around you, even if you may sometimes feel like you are a priority. If you’re working from home, sometimes children, spouses or housemates don’t quite get the memo that you’re trying to get work done. Can you think of a few ways you can communicate your needs to the people around you?
