Episode 49: What Is Leadership In These Troublesome Times
We recorded this mere hours after Utah got hit with the biggest earthquake in 27 years and during self-imposed Social Distancing. It’s important to realize that during these times, worry is not going to help. Panic is not going to solve the problem. It’s time to keep calm and wash your hands. There is always a different outlook to take on these things and leaders are flexible enough to know when to make a zig when others zag. We get into the top qualities that represent leadership and how men can do something about it.

Here is the excerpt that I read on the pod:
I read this and wanted to share. I do believe there’s always light in the darkness…and this person seems to have found it.
There is so much fear, and perhaps rightfully so, about COVID-19.
And, what if…
If we subscribe to the philosophy that life is always working out for us, that there is an intelligence far greater than humans at work…
That all is interconnected.
the virus is here to help us?
What is truly important.
Reconnecting with family and community.
Reducing travel so that the environment, the skies, the air, our lungs all get a break.
Parts of China are seeing blue sky and clouds for the first time in forever with the factories being shut down.
Working from home rather than commuting to work (less pollution, more personal time).
Reconnecting with family as there is more time at home.
An invitation to turn inwards — a deep meditation — rather than the usual extroverted going out to self-soothe.
To reconnect with self — what is really important to me?
A reset economically.
The working poor. The lack of healthcare access for over 30 million in the US. The need for paid sick leave.
How hard does one need to work to be able to live, to have a life outside of work?
And, washing our hands — how did that become a “new” thing that we needed to remember. But, yes, we did.
The presence of Grace for all.
There is a shift underway in our society — what if it is one that is favorable for us?
What if this virus is an ally in our evolution?
In our remembrance of what it means to be connected, humane, living a simpler life, to be less impactful/ more kind to our environment.
An offering from my heart this morning. Offered as another perspective. Another way of relating to this virus, this unfolding, this evolution.
It was time for a change, we all knew that.
And, change has arrived.
