The technicalities behind contracts and negotiations during major economic shifts can leave us all uncertain and stressed. However, simply understanding and finding positive outlets for negative emotions during times of uncertainty can relieve the anxiety that it brings. Today’s guests, Tyra Warner and Dr. Sherry Walling discuss the terms of contracts and negotiations during economic shifts and important tools to use to cope with the stress and emotionally taxing changes. Join Eric Rozenberg in part-two of this three-part conversation to hear how you can find a sense of levity and lightness in unpredictable crisis.
