…and you will.
There will be days when no one will take your cold calls, your warm calls, or even a hot call.
There will be days when the family, the children, the house and other distractions will seem to crowd out the endless stream of productive work that you know you have to do.
There will be days when you will get angry/depressed/despondent/melancholy and it will seem to others that are outside of your internal mental circus that you are actually not all that engaged with reality.
There will be days when, no matter how many accolades and “thank yous” you will receive, they will seem to roll off of your back in the face of mounting debts, panic and fear of imminent failure.
On the days that the conflict consultant has these issues, she should push back from the table, take a break and go have coffee with a trusted friend or colleague.
Physical activity also helps, in taking a walk, or going for a run.
Finally, on the days when the committed conflict consultant has issues the most important thing to remember is that this too, shall pass.
