In these extraordinary and challenging times, we are focusing the Thoughtful Leaders Blog on topics that we hope will be most helpful now, such as: self-care, mindfulness, teaming and communicating virtually, moving through fear and uncertainty, and, as always, Thoughtful Leadership.

We hope you find these posts supportive and helpful. If you do, please let us know and share them. If there is another topic or issue that you would like to hear about, please let us know.

Wishing you good health, safety, and peace!

Robyn and Lisa


“Each of us has the opportunity to change and grow until our very last breath. Happy creating.”
~M.F. Ryan

I know it seems like a trite phrase, “every moment is a new beginning.” It may seem trite, especially in this moment, but it’s true.

There is always a chance to begin again. There is always an opportunity to learn something new or to try something different. There is always the freedom to experiment with a novel approach or to change how you see or do things. Again, at least in some ways, this is true now more than ever.

There is always the opportunity to be someone or something different. To find a new way to see the world or to become aware of your strengths and challenges and find a way to be your best self.

Not that we’re suggesting that you – that any of us – need to change who we are. One of the first Thoughtful leadership behaviors we teach is knowing and accepting who you are. But there are ways in which we all get in our own way. There are thought patterns we have and ways we behave that limit us. They limit our effectiveness, our leadership, our connection with others, and our joy. And now can be an opportunity to look Thoughtfully at our lives and our leadership and to intentionally choose what we will learn from this experience.

Take care of yourself, and enjoy the journey.

How have you changed and grown recently?
