In this conversation we discuss

▫️ Why we all need a third space

▫️ The differences in the way we show up at work and home.

▫️ How to embrace reflection and rest in our busy lives.

▫️ And so much more.

You can quote us on that…

“One of the things that teachers and school leaders can do is use the third space in a way that you can leave that work day behind and show up in the home a better version of themselves.”

Dr Adam Faser

“Reset to align their mindset.”
