We live in a more connected world but we feel more isolated; we communicate with more people but dialogue less; we face more conflicts but are told to avoid them; we feel emotions but try to rationalise them away. We cannot manage others until we can manage ourselves. Gain literacy to deal with emotions and conflicts competently.
