A time to use our voices with extra care

Getting things in perspective – building the working relationships you want

This blog comes from guest contributor, Master executive coach and accredited VoicePrint practitioner Helen Mundy of Wide Awake Leadership.

So frequently, as an Executive coach, my clients present scenarios where they have tied themselves up in knots around a particular working relationship. The relationship is taking a disproportionate percentage of their energy to deal with and has become a drama that feeds their negative emotions, keeping them stuck in a vicious cycle of judgement and reaction.
