The Best of 2020

As 2020 winds down, I think we are collectively breathing a sigh of relief that we made it through an extremely challenging year.

With all that 2020 has thrown at us, it’s no wonder that people are feeling overwhelmed. We were inundated with uncertainty, and wearing masks, social distancing and all things virtual became the new norm. But we also saw people come together, doing all that they can to make things better for others. I think it’s important to take a minute to recognize and celebrate this.

How has 2020 challenged or changed you? Disruption and challenges make us stronger. Being anticipatory helps us find new pathways when old ones get too crowded or go away.  How can we anticipate the next opportunity? 

As I reflect on the most popular beBetter blogs of 2020, learning to navigate uncertainty and embrace all the valuable lessons that 2020 has given us were clear themes. Let’s take a look back at the most popular beBetter blogs of the year. Happy reading… and Happy New Year!

A Prayer for All of Us

Only with an intentional sense of belonging that provides each of us the safe place to share will we make the progress we all desire. It’s not one huge step. It’s lots of small steps, prayers and conversations every day that will turn the tide on individual and systemic racism. Together we can #beEvenBetter every day. Let’s not only pray together—let’s make progress together. Read more...

This is Temporary 


I love CeCe’s mindset of gratitude and her new accessory is a daily reminder that even if we are temporarily CLOSED, we are BLESSED in so many ways. What a great time for us to reflect on how BLESSED we are. A time filled with uncertainty, fear, panic, depression, and yet we also see courage, love, service and hope. Read more...

Logic vs Emotion         


The COVID-19 pandemic has quickly altered our course and coping with a new business model focused on managing a productive remote work environment is our new reality. This is on top of the technology transformation that is already underway in our profession and for all business enterprises. We have a new norm overnight, and that means things will be hard and we are going to make mistakes. Read more...

Am I on Mute? 

shutterstock_512013562-1It's silent on our nine-person zoom call as one of our partners, Bruce, shares very relevant insights with us. We are (again) experiencing that uncomfortable quiet where no one feels compelled to speak up. Crickets! I think this happens more than we want to admit in our new virtual communication world.
