What’s one of the weirdest things about the pandemic experience? Wearing a mask while sitting at your desk or walking into the gas station? Not shaking people’s hands at a networking event? Zoom meaning something other than ‘super-fast’ in our daily vocabulary?

All those experiences are things we’re sharing, but we’re sharing something else too - the process of negotiating these new behaviors in our professional and daily lives. What was super practiced and smooth - meeting someone new and shaking their hand - is now an awkward moment full of bumping elbows and nervous laughter.

We’re used to making decisions looking for the best path through. We’re used to finding a way to get almost everything important to us. What happens when that solution, experience, interaction is elusive? What happens when we have to trade off things we want for things we might want more?

Listen in as JoyGenea and Michelle discuss trade-offs, risk, and social negotiations in this episode of “If These Heels Could Talk.”
