We, as leaders, need to remember to inspire through these turbulent waters. I am reminded of living through the past three recessions holding a leadership role and, while recessions both small and large are challenging, this particular crisis presents an unprecedented set of challenges. Crisis requires that we hold ourselves to the highest standard and to be our very best. People want to hear our stories – funny ones, scary ones, and authentic human ones about how we have inspired in the past and how we inspire today to focus on this present moment and not the future of potential devastation. Worrying is imagining the worst case scenario. I, however, choose to see this as a time that is about re-calibration and I truly believe that amazing good will come out of this for our business and for yours. We will come out stronger, more agile, and better than we were.
I wish you all health and success.
