3 Keys For Building Relationships With Those You Lead
Successful relationships platonic, romantic, hetero, queer, or otherwise are all partnerships — people working together on a project called us. They require conversations that demand you pull up two chairs to the table, one for yourself, and one for your ego. Saying the difficult things might not always be pleasant, but it will always be worth it. And who knows. You might be able to make a home you can live in forever. You might be able to build yourself a mansion.
