Know those horrible situations where everyone’s fighting at work — or worse, at home? Talk about a horrible investment: being invested in a rotten environment can overshadow even the best portfolio returns. Good news, though. It turns out, there are two types of conflict: the kind that allows us to grow and produces a positive outcome and the kind that’s downright toxic. To help us find a way toward healthy conflict, Gabe Karp joins us. He talks about why it can be hard to see the other side of an argument, how to turn bad conflict into good, and how to move toward a healthier working environment by even maybe fighting more (but in a healthy way).
But before that, we speak to Lamine Zarrad from Stellar about credit and the current economy. What happens when interest rates continue to rise and you need a new loan that you can’t afford? Lamine created a company called StellarFI, which was built to help people build their credit through paying bills on time. We’ll talk about credit issues, the economic slowdown, and how you can protect yourself.
And of course, we’ll share our TikTok minute AND Doug will share his trivia.
