Recognize the power of your voice and the positive influence you possess. Words are one of the greatest gifts we can share in this world. When we speak, we write on the fabric of human beings. More than ever, we need themes of unity, grace, and selflessness in our messaging. Rise above the verbal warfare that has become an everyday occurrence and reality.
As leaders, we must cultivate moments for deep thinking, deep work, and stillness. Our comfort zone provides a state of mental security, but it stunts our holistic growth. We are living through some challenging times. But for centuries, life has been uncertain, and our future has been unknown. Being confronted with this pandemic is out of our control. How we choose to respond is not. How we show up for ourselves, our loved ones and those we lead is in our control.
Fear cripples potential and all the possibilities that reside within us. It takes courage to serve and lead with empathy. Having a strategy is as much about what you don't do as it is what you do. We must connect the dots and seek the truth while being at peace with the silence. Wherever you are, be there fully.
