The Role of Structure

Change breaks structure. By understanding the role of structure and giving structure, you can provide support and minimize resistance to change.

Tending to Oneself

As a leader, your most important resource is yourself. Tending to yourself is not an excuse for self-indulgence, but making time to give yourself support in order to be more effective.

Building Your Own Support

Tending to yourself involves building support structures at work, at home with family, and psychologically within ourselves.
