Episode 93: Critical Thinking & Difficult Conversations

Did you miss our recent feature on the Kate & Mike Show Podcast? The takeaways from this episode are gold! We talk about inclusion, critical thinking, and how to have difficult conversations – both in life and in business. I also give clarity on how to deal with things that trigger us emotionally and how to navigate social media and use the facts instead of our emotions, so we can further the conversation in a productive way.
