As this whole US election process unfolds, we continually hear reporters discuss how polarized people in the US are. I’m sure you’ve heard your share about this issue.

In last week’s blog, I asked the following questions: Have you watched a relationship that you are or were in deteriorate and die? Is that presently going on in your company or in your personal life?
