Crises take many forms. Fading marriages, sick children, and faltering parents; stagnant salaries and poor advancement prospects; troublesome medical test results; challenging mortgage payments; the mirage of a stable retirement are just a few of the vexing hurdles that cripple a person’s ability to perform.
Crises rip up families, short-circuit relationships, and disrupt companies.
