Getting involved in a new relationship whether it is professional or intimate can be intimidating and stressful, especially for introverts. . . trying to decide what to say and how to successfully navigate small talk may cause so much stress that an introvert may shut down. Even extroverts can struggle with this at times.
A couple who has hit rock bottom can benefit from a relationship coach to help them find positivity in his or her partner.
A majority of issues in most relationships occur due to miscommunication or communication gaps. A relationship coach can coach and train people for better communication, which helps to bring in greater tolerance in the relationships.

Forbes magazine recently wrote an article here about a study that was conducted on whether people that worked remotely were happier. Unfortunately, the study does not say how long the employees were working remotely.
Working remotely has a lot of advantages. There is little to no commute, distractions are (sometimes) much less, and work/life balance can benefit from such an arrangement.
However, there are some disadvantages as well. Humans were built for community, even introverts like myself. As much as I love my quiet office, even I have to stick my head out every once in a while and get some real human interaction. But, working remotely does not have that option. I would guess that the happiest remote workers have found a way to be more social while they work. I know many extroverts that would be gnawing pencils in half if they worked remotely without the possibility of social interactions.
Everyone thinks in different ways, so there will always be personality clashes. It is a fact of life. However, the number one way to avoid, or lessen, management problems is effective communication. Lack of communication causes a good percentage of the problems in organizations. It leads to frustration, irritation, and stress. Effective communication will get everyone on board and make them feel like they are part of the team.
Communication is so important that a recent Inc. Magazine article ranked lack of communicating a vision as one of the top 7 reasons employees quit their job (https://www.inc.com/lolly-daskal/7-reasons-the-best-employees-quit-even-when-they-like-their-job.html). Having happy, productive employees is another way to lower management problems, so communication across the organization is vitally important.
To add on to my post from Friday about the 4-hour lunch break is an article from Inc. Magazine on useful things to do during your free time. I like the items in this article. I especially like point 5. Learn something that has nothing to do with your work. Have fun doing new things so you can eventually find a new hobby.
