  • Less conflict, better connections:

    I can show roommates how to get along better, how to have a better chance of keeping and strengthening their connections, and how to keep minor conflicts from turning into full-scale wars. This will make for a better experience for all concerned.

    Audience: Anyone with roommate "issues." Others tasked with "keeping the peace," e.g. Resident Advisers on campus.

    I can describe the same kinds of concepts and techniques for those who are considering moving into one of the newer shared housing operations, such as one of the co-living operations. The more potential clients realize that there are ways to live with others that can work really well, the more receptive they are likely to be to the concept itself.

  • Getting the word out:

    An important part of my function here at theroommatecoach.com is to provide an ongoing clearinghouse for all kinds of information regarding the various shared housing formats.
