In 2018, author and communication trainer Nana Walzer gave tips on burning questions about living together in her column “Relative to one another”. Whether in love, in private life or at work: Everywhere we meet people with different habits, different needs, different experiences, different expectations and surprising behaviors. These differences can stimulate us, but they can also excite us. They create insecurity, dissatisfaction or provide reasons for conflict. Either way, they raise a lot of question marks. The 2-minute contributions offer an insight into the background to areas of tension and provide practical solution options.

The articles can be read in the blog:
