BONNIE ARTMAN FOX'S BIO
After working with thousands of clients as psychiatric nurse and licensed family
therapist who were struggling with dysfunctional workplaces, Bonnie Artman Fox
discovered the Workplace Family Factor®: The connection between how conflict
was handled in your upbringing influences how you handle conflict today.
Since 2012, Bonnie has been applying her proprietary system -- Regard the Scar,
Reframe to Stop Blame, Respect and Connect, and Resolve to Evolve to transform
