  3. Be accountable when things to awry, and
  4. Remain open to receiving feedback.

Feeling Heard

How do we tackle a desire to feel understood? find your tribe and seek out supportive communities online or in your local area.


Menopause adds another layer of complexity when it comes to navigating relationships in the workplace. Although workplaces are becoming more aware of the menopause conversation this doesn’t mean things will improve overnight.

Enjoy our chat and let me know if you have any comments or suggestions for future topics of conversation.
