Black Lives Matter
At Aha! Leadership we stand in support with all humanity. In light of recent events, we unite with the black community and recognize that racism is real.
Leaders must lead by being willing to engage in uncomfortable conversations that drive change. The next right step is to listen and learn.
There is a difference between hearing and listening. Hearing happens when we’re able to recognize a sound. Listening happens when we put in the effort (action) to understand what it means. And when we take action, change happens.
As a leader, ask yourself….
- Are you willing to lead?
- Are you willing to step into uncomfortable territory?
- Are you willing to really listen to others?
- Are you willing to act on what you learn?
Being receptive and understanding others are key components to creating a respectful workplace.
Please know, we are here to help your team listen, learn and create an inclusive workplace.
“To understand and be understood – those are among life’s greatest gifts and every interaction is an opportunity to exchange them.” – Maria Papova, writer
