5 Chairs 5 Choices: We spend about eighty percent of our day at work, the rest is at home. If we have a bad day at work we are likely to take that negativity home with us and vice versa. The 5 Chairs is a powerful and systematic method which helps us master our own behaviors and manage the behaviors of others. To be a good leader is to contribute to the success and happiness of everyone, at work and at home, on a conscious level.

Emotional First Aid: We’ll go to the doctor when we feel physical pain. So why don’t we see a health professional when we feel emotional pain: guilt, loss, loneliness? Watch this TED talk where Guy Winch makes a compelling case to practice emotional hygiene — taking care of our emotions, our minds, with the same diligence we take care of our bodies.
