There is no shortage of management gurus, pundits, opinion writers, or self-help authors clamoring to tell us how to navigate our daily work or home lives, especially as the pandemic wears on.
A recent, relatively short and to-the-point essay resonated with me.
The author highlighted three behaviors – easy-to-remember concepts – that I advocate for keeping top of mind:
• Be kind
• Be flexible
• Be honest
Absent a reliable roadmap for moving forward in the coronavirus journey, kindness, flexibility, and honesty can be put into action daily.
We’re modeling these behaviors at the Woodson Art Museum, warmly and sincerely welcoming visitors back to our galleries, even though masks obscure our delighted smiles.
Early in the pandemic, we learned to pivot as well as remain nimble in planning.
Honest communication always has been a source of pride for me; its importance has intensified during the pandemic. We’re committed to not only speaking honestly, but also to sharing information in a timely manner.
We’re proud of our ongoing efforts to be kind, flexible, and honest. Perhaps these three words are a pandemic silver lining.
