Today we feature personal reflections of multiple MOR alums, woven together around a common topic of empathy and self-care.
The Queen song, Under Pressure popped in my head and made me smile. And love dares you to care for the people on the edge of the night, And love dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves... this is our last dance this is ourselves under pressure. Doesn’t this ring true, especially at this moment in time?
The harsh reality is that personal and professional growth can be very painful. One begins to realize that laced in all the undercurrents of “fake it till you make it”, the imposter syndrome, and the art of improv is the common understanding that everyone is going through some kind of sizable internal strife to push forward.
Now, I’m finding myself asking “Self? What if I stopped waiting for others to unstick me?” “What if I focused on me, how will that impact myself and others?” “What if I start chasing, rather than waiting for something to fall in my lap?”
The world must expect this class of graduates, and by inference all of us, to step up to the challenges and address the real issues of our time.
At MOR we believe Black lives matter. We need leaders who can help us through these painful and challenging times.
Emotional Intelligence and Strategic Thinking are the essences of getting the "Right Things Done." They apply in spades in layoff situations.
THANK YOU to everyone who provided feedback on Tuesday Readings. A key theme we saw is approaching our leadership journey with a growth mindset.
In February, 2020, we sought feedback from the audience of MOR Tuesday Readings. This posting synthesizes the results of that feedback.
Our world would be a better place if we were all alert to bullying words and actions, and took the time to gently address.
