Episode 166: “Caught In The Storm” w/Gerry Friesen

In today’s episode, Tracy chats with Gerry Friesen about being “Caught In The Storm.”

Stress and conflict have the ability to create storms at the best of times. How we deal with that determines how much damage the storm will create in our relationships. A key component of avoiding the damage is to have a basic understanding of who we are and how we react in any given situation.

Come along as Gerry and Tracy chat about:
  • How it often feels like we are caught in one storm or another on the farm.
  • Gerry talks about recognizing and identifying stress.
  • He shares the negative implications that stress can have on your farm and your farm business management.
  • Gerry chats about responding to stress and wraps the episode up with stress-busting tips.
