The Beauty of Conflict & Friction in Relationships - CrisMarie Campbell & Susan Clarke

The Beauty of Conflict and Friction - The School of Bravery - Youtube Cover

This month in The School of Bravery we've been focusing on the bravery ingredient of FRICTION. It's been a really good month. We've highlighted the things that keep us from making the steady progress we're hoping and aiming for. 

When today's guest experts reached out to me I knew it was a match made in heaven for this month in particular! CrisMarie Campbell & Susan Clarke are the authors of a new book titled, The Beauty of Conflict for Couples and today's episode is chock-full of excellent advice for ALL of us who do life with other people -- that's everyone, by the way.

It doesn't matter what your home, work, or creative life looks like, this episode will have some excellent pieces for you to digest and apply immediately to your life. I'm really excited to introduce these two to you!

PS - CrisMarie and Susan also joined me for an exclusive bonus interview to discuss how these concepts apply to politics, advocacy work, and social justice.  As always, students can access our exclusive bonus interview and the rest of our guest expert trainings in the library at
