Heather Kleinschmidt published on

Have you ever found yourself running into the same difficult situation over and over? It might be with a different person, in a different context - but it’s the exact same problem on repeat, like a broken record.

In today’s episode, listen as guest Lara Currie unpacks the emotions that drive this behavior, and learn how you can work with your own habits to learn your triggers + replace your default response with more productive behavior in order to improve your relationships and your worklife - both for yourself and for those around you.

In this episode, we talk about:

  • why conflict happens
  • what triggers us
  • how to handle difficult situations
  • micro-boundary breaches: how to prevent them + how to respond to them
  • how to build a healthy worklife culture… even when you’re working with imperfect people
