Welcome back to Episode #10 of The Daily Interaction podcast. The weekly interaction today is about learning to argue smart in your relationships. How do you cultivate fair, effective and kind arguments rather than try, without success, to eliminate natural disagreements that are bound to come up between two human beings? That is our topic this week, tune in and listen, because I bring you heaps of experience. I knew I’d put the door slamming and stomping away acts to a good use someday!
