Leading in the Middle

For those in leadership positions the current challenges and disruptions can lead to exhaustion, reactive responses and apathy both personally and professionally. Often leaders dismiss and push through the experience, leaving them vulnerable to burnout and leading in ways that sabotage the progress they desire, and the connection needed with their teams to accomplish the work and activate the mission.

Building Resilience One Conversation at a Time

One conversation. One exchange of words spoken, written, typed, texted, or posted can change the direction and ultimately the outcome. Conversations create culture. And yet, the skill and practice of creating culture building conversations is given little attention and less intention in organizations. Conversations directly impact whether the mission is activated or discarded. Companies can't afford to not give attention to strategies that equip people to have transformational conversations. The very sustainability of the organization is a stake.
