Things we all miss care to chat
We have all had toxic people dust us with their poison. Difficult people are drawn to the reasonable ones and all of us have likely had or have at least one person in our lives who have us bending around ourselves like barbed wire in endless attempts to please them — only to never really get there. Being able to spot their harmful behaviour is the first step to minimising their impact. You might not be able to change what they do, but you can change what you do with it, and any idea that toxic somebody in your life might have that they can get away with it.

Our new persons
No matter the circumstances, we have all gone through periods of missing someone in our lives.
The office is usually a hub of creative collaboration, but with the current need to work from home are we missing vital ingredients in our daily working life?
