Taking chances is so important. I wouldn’t be where I am now if I didn’t do things that scare me. – Rochelle Byrne
Challenging times call for a heightened sense of leadership presence. While remote working tools offer fabulous features, none will replace a great human leader. Here are four simple things to remember:
1. Care for people with compassion.
2. No matter how many people you may be responsible for, see each person for who they are as individuals.
3. Listen intently … for the verbal and the non-verbal.
4. Speak with kindness, respectfulness and above all, with a sense of purpose and resolve. Be there for each other.
Over the years I have found that things that are done in decency and order work best. As you approach your endeavors, note the course that those you admire have journeyed. Chew the meat, spit out the bones and if you can innovate along the way, kudos! Most importantly, “trust the process!”

Whether you subscribe to the 80/20 rule, minimalism or another approach, priorities in work and life make a difference. During this season, take note of your daily routine. With list in hand, move the important things to the top and de-prioritize or prune things that don’t serve you and your goals, the new habits you are trying to build, etc.
Your ‘platform’ is the station in life you’ve achieved thus far. It is the sum total of all your efforts in honing your talents and skills. Many times, people believe they are starting from zero and that is just not true. You have relationships, experiences and a reputation. With that as a starting point, you can build from that using thoughtful practices.
Feed your faith and your fears will starve to death. – Max Lucado
