Belonging in an Era of Division

Divided workforces.

Divided communities.

Divided churches.

Divided families.

Yet…leaders are expected to create a place where employees not only feel they are contributing and doing meaningful work; and have that same workplace feel welcoming for everyone.


I don’t think so.

What makes the difference? Who makes these disparate elements coalesce into a productive and supportive culture?

We do.

That’s our job as leaders, right? We set the tone for everything. It might feel like a burden sometimes. Although if I’m being honest, I more often consider it a privilege. How many people in this world actually have the opportunity to set the tone for a company’s culture?

Not many.

So how does one go about turning this grandiose vision into reality? It starts with energy. Lots of sustained energy from you. Energy captures people’s attention. Energy makes others want to follow. Energy inspires and helps the team believe that something good will happen.

We have to be that energy.

It’s the first step in the process, but an all-important one nonetheless.

How do you bring energy to your leadership practice?

Thanks for being here.
