It is important to understand that this time is giving all of us an opportunity to really understand what it means to navigate the tension between the good and the terrible. We must acknowledge that there is terrible. We must feel it and understand it. We must not pretend it does not exist. And then we must refocus on all that is good.

As VLI Leaders, we need to remember and fully embrace that we are exactly what the world needs at this moment in history. We are well trained to manage an infectious disease outbreak AND we have a skill set that will allow us to lead well in this time of uncertainty and chaos. Let this video encourage you to remember exactly who you are- all kinds of awesome.
