Conflict and Compassion

In this episode, I share a conversation with Ilona Vass.

Ilona is the Founder of Dancing with the Dragons, a company that teaches productive communication and positive conflict strategies.

She is inspired to improve how humans speak with each other and handle challenging conversations, always having a positive outcome in mind. Ilona assists leaders and their teams to develop engaged, thriving, supportive workplaces. She believes a healthy and compassionate company culture equals a profitable business.
