A willingness to listen to different perspectives allows for growth, learning, unlearning and change.
We are desperately in need of leadership. Of courageous people willing to be vulnerable and brave enough to acknowledge their privilege in order to have open and honest dialogue. Of diverse leaders with differing perspectives who are willing to embrace their differences to find ways forward.
We are hurting. As people, as a nation, within families.
Our past should not dictate our future, but it does impact our present. We need to help heal. We need each other. We need to be compassionate and do more. Acknowledging and being accountable.
Brave leadership by individuals and within smaller communities are happening. Bold actions as well as small gestures are being seen, felt and heard.
Where can you step into leadership today? How can you listen, participate or lead one or more? How will your choices and diverse opinions effect change?
