Gears are not people. Gears do not have differing
personalities, ideas, ways of thinking and doing.

Human relationships involve conflict. Productive conflict
is the collaboration of differences resulting in growth.

Business Owner "In the midst of a conflicted work
situation with strong personalities
at play, Debra was able to bring her
calm and counsel. While none of us

we all grew as persons and as an
