GRACE under pressure

With the world turned upside down due the pandemic, the economic crisis and the spotlight on racial injustice, we are feeling pressures we never felt before. While there are no easy answers to the challenges in front of us, it is necessary to seek solutions for our organizations, our families, and ourselves.

Solutions can come when we work together but we can only cooperate if we connect. And that is where grace enters. Grace facilitates connection. It is the catalyst for the greater good and when coupled with purpose it enables us to lead ourselves and others to a better place.

Purpose sparks our WHY. It leads us to create our vision (becoming) and our mission (doing). GRACE comes our HOW – the way we fulfill our vision and conduction our mission – humanely, generously and compassionately.

GRACE under pressure is a LinkedIn Live Interview show that poses questions to thought leaders and doers whose ideas and actions are helping us come to a greater understanding of ourselves and the greater opportunities that await us.

GRACE under pressure  is a show that reveals what is too often dismissed as the “soft stuff” – the caring, the connecting, and commitment we feel toward others.

GRACE under pressure provides insights into how leaders can show empathy in ways that bring people together for common cause, to achieve intended results, and to facilitate improved connections among colleagues. 

Now more than ever we need one another. GRACE under pressure will be a means to explore what it means to be a fully human leader, one who seeks to make where we work a place where people can connect as colleagues and maybe even as friends.

GRACE under pressure runs Tuesdays/Thursdays at 2 p.m. ET. It will be streamlined live and available later viewing.
