States of Grace, Reflection, Learning, and Action

 
Hello! We are experimenting and doing something a bit different for these blogs now... I will be doing more video and discussion of what may be happening in your organizations, cultures, and personal and executive leadership.
 
Today I talk about where we're at in the pandemic, our conversation of racial inequity, cultural health, and seven different "energetic" and "emotional" states you can tap when you are wanting to learn, listen, stay open, be an invitation, navigate difficult conversations, and help be a part of a productive conversation...

How we’re here to help during this time: Resources, books, and virtual keynotes and engagements

This information was shared in our bi-weekly contagious leadership conversation broadcast (which is subscription-based). Given what we’re all going through right now, we wanted to provide this information on a bigger scale. Stay well. Stay present. Wash your hands. Breathe.

 

My team and I are devoted to helping things go better, showing up well with you, bending and flexing to be as useful as possible, staying well and working our IEP ourselves, and serving you in this time in new ways as needed.

Here's how...
