The Downsizing Default

The U.S. economy saw unemployment go from a historic low of 3.5% to a historic high of 14.7% and down to 6.7% in a matter of months. One of the primary drivers behind the increase was a common decision to downsize in crisis.

Strategic and visionary discussions seem impossible, because you are just too tired.

On the Fence of Change

To change or not to change – that is the question.

Being a catalyst of change is an intentional daily decision. A decision that can only be affirmed and sustained when it’s backed by realistic expectations of ourselves.

We’re chatting about how to shift our perspective as a powerful change worker on this episode of The HRart Rise Morning Show.

See you on the LIVE side! 🙂

To persist is to resist traveling down the path we know well. It is trusting as we steadily step into the unknown bit by bit.
