What if? 

What if we built workplaces, one process at a time, that allowed us to do many excellent things? How could instilling respect and kindness make a difference in what we do each day?

I often try to imagine that workplace. Fortunately, I have worked in some of those places. But I have also worked where mistrust thwarted what we could have accomplished. 

If you do not have the position of authority as the leader, lead from where you sit. Create excellence within your own sphere of influence. 

Be the change you hope to see around you. Your effort will make a difference for someone.

And always—

Be kind. Be brave. Be you.
