Welcome to March 2020 Monday Moanin Thoughts. Hopefully this will be a positive and productive week for you and your staff. Positive and productive are always challenging during the month of March and coming up with an idea or focus for this blog is no different. After some reflection, I am posting five excerpts from my previous 342 Monday Moanin Thoughts. Hopefully they will be timely and helpful as you begin your week.

One thing is certain, there are no easy answers during this difficult time. However, I would emphasize and remind you that Leaders Don’t Hide! It is critical to fight the invitation to disappear. When your organization is hurting it is important to be hopeful and I believe you can do this without acting Pollyanna. You can be respectful without cheerleading. You can be supportive without trying to fix things for people. You can be a listener and fight the urge to be a nervous over-talker. You need to be present in order to be compassionate.
