Amanda Gordon, in sharing her inaugural poem, “The Hill We Climb”, held the hearts and hopes of millions around the world, reminding us that “There is always light, if only we’re brave enough to see it. If only we’re brave enough to be it.” It sparked in me a reminder of the importance of the work that all of us do every day to support people in having choice and control over lives they choose for themselves.
We emerge from the shadow of 2020 seeking new ways of working, new ways of being with one another to create the world we all seek, one where every person is valued for their unique gifts and contributions, and every person can thrive.
What stands before us is an imperative call to action to create workplaces that practice courage, compassion, and responsibility. Business leaders have shared with me that new ways of working require teams to be more autonomous, but few staff, or managers feel confident in knowing how to cultivate needed trust and autonomy, whether sharing a workspace or working remotely.
We are deeply excited to share this personal invitation to join our Teams and Leaders Program for 2021 to build courage, trust and autonomy, so that you and your organization can emerge stronger in 2021. As you plan end of fiscal year expenditures, invest in building your team’s leadership capacity to be prepared for what stands before us. Teams and Leaders2021 includes two amazing programs and limited spaces are available at an invitation only early bird price through February 1. Dare to Lead will give you courage to rise, Building Trust and Autonomy in Teams will give you confidence to act.
