    I love the articles about house chores (zombies!) and making eye contact and inclusion in conversations. The second one in particular seems like a useful thing for many people in business environments to read and practice upon in order to create a more encompassing and engaging workplace.

    Seanna Lea – Once I became aware of the eye contact thing I find myself overcompensating by being sure to glance at everybody. I’ve been in situations where I’ve asked somebody a question and they’ve addressed the answer to somebody else, it’s disconcerting.
