She has the Gift of Gab!

I've heard many of the concepts before, but Jackie has the talent to say things in ways that really hit home and helps me take them to heart. Her series on communication in relationships is awesome. Highly recommend this podcast if you enjoy learning about how people work.

Excellent. HCP! Yes. We need public health ed about this. more, more, more.

Well, in families HCP create dysfunctional family systems and their pathology is rather contagious. The family system takes on these personality traits. The same in companies. Yes so it often ends in the HCP crashing and burning it all down. We are wtnessing this in real time.
