That Was a Quick Fight

Conflict can ruin your business and your health with the stress. It doesn’t have to be that way. Queen Elizabeth holds a meeting with her Prime Minister for 20 minutes every Tuesday evening in a private audience room at Buckingham Palace. In the current Broadway production The Audience, chronicling what may or may not have happened in these private meetings, Helen Mirren as the Queen says: There is no conflict that can’t be resolved in 20 minutes or less. Elizabeth must be on to something – she has had 12 Prime Ministers. That number may increase to 13 in the next few weeks. See a great clip from the play below. It was a brilliant show!
