Message from Our Engagement Leader

A lot of decisions about how we respond today are being made each hour. As leaders, we have a responsibility to our organization, our co-workers, and our community.

We are faced with these decisions and how we choose to move forward will define our ability to lead and where our organization will stand.

Often in times of such uncertainty, we reflect on historical timelines of when we faced similar challenges. Many of our readers have asked how how they should proceed with their communication.
