Good afternoon, and I hope that the ides of September find you well.

A confluence of ideas and adventures arose for me this past week; 50th birthday party, seeing my brother and his son, being touched by love and humility and of course, deep and profound conversations. One of those prompted this thought, that one of the key elements of leadership is self-awareness, and most especially the questions, what am I doing right now, and who am I being right now?

This is most especially the case in difficult and challenging times. These questions challenge us to recognize that the people we work with look to our behaviours and our integrity far more than they listen to our words.

What am I doing right now? Who am I being right now? May the answers to these questions bring you strength and courage this week.
