These times will test our souls. Our faith will be tested, but it will become our rock. Our resolve will be stretched but it will support us. Our businesses and economy will be damaged, but they will survive. Our friends and families may be separated, but we will hold them tightly.
Leaders are purveyors of hope. Now is the time for us to step up. Our employees, friends and followers need to see hope in our eyes and positivity in our voices. It will not be easy. They need to hear us say the things above. They need to know there is an end to this and better days will come. They need to know this is survivable. It is time to instill hope. It is time to step up as leaders. It is time for us to pass the test of leadership.
Let’s do this together. Take one day at a time and lead with hope!
