Reflecting on the past is an important part of the growth process
In the next episode of The Leader's Journey Podcast, Trisha and Jim are reflecting on the past two years, what they've learned, how things have changed, and what they can see differently now from a different vantage point.
When I asked Trisha why they chose this topic for this episode, she said, "Because in 2020, the world changed, and that experience changed us—all of us. In mid-March, when we recorded the first of these podcasts, we didn't know what we didn't know, but we knew that we all needed to be bringing our best thinking to the challenges in front of us."
Part of that process for Trisha was to go back and review some of the podcasts and blog posts they shared during the early stages of the pandemic.
We wanted to encourage you to review a few of those resources and reflect on the leadership challenges you've faced in the last two years to learn from them and take that learning into the future. Here is one blog post and three podcasts we shared between March and May 2020:
- Systems Thinking in Anxious Times
- Leading in Uncertain Times (COVID-19)
- After the Adrenaline: Self-care in a Time of Crisis
- The Big Picture: Pandemic, Anxiety, and Society
Three things to reflect on
Trisha shared three things, in particular, she hopes people will reflect on as they read and listen to the resources above:
After reviewing the resources above, we invite you to listen to the podcast episode coming out next week and we want to hear from you. What do you notice when you reflect on your role as a leader over the past two years?
Thanks for reading!
