A Beautiful Idea for Palm Sunday

How can we publicly acknowledge this important day on our calendar when so many of us will be behind closed doors? The Missionaries of the Holy Spirit posted this idea on their Facebook page: What if everyone on Sunday April 5 in the morning, puts a branch on the door of their house or on the window, to celebrate Palm Sunday?

Sustaining Through Uncertainty

by Mark Haeussler, CEO – Alpine Leadership  The initial portion of reacting to a health and economic shock often comes with certainty of action, be it sanitizing efforts, leveraging the virtual space to the extent possible, changes in hours or shifts, and redirection of resources.  The initial shock itself provides the impetus to take action and to feel purposeful.  Leaders need to leverage this into more sustainable effort.

Leading Through Uncertainty

People crave certainty. Certainty creates confidence and reduces stress. We model the future, project it based on past experiences, and make educated predictions. As for seeing the future, such ability to anticipate with certainty is the thing of science fiction movies. Like it or not, some level of uncertainty is a passenger on any voyage.
