It’s June 1st, 2020. About this time last Monday evening, four Minneapolis police officers calmly murdered George Floyd in broad daylight. (I’m not going to provide a link because it is nearly impossible that you haven’t heard this news.) Protests and widespread unrest have captured our attention 24/7 since that day.
In my conversations with friends & colleagues over the last week, everyone acknowledges that something feels different this time. Different than Ferguson, different than Charlottesville, different than Baltimore. Our future as a nation feels more uncertain than ever.
We can’t know what the coming weeks & months will hold, but we do know it is critically important to examine our beliefs and our values. Last month, we noticed many of our fellow humans talked about the internal conflict they experience as a result of needing to separate their professional and personal lives. That approach seems less tenable than ever. So, this month we ask you:
What does it look like to go to work with your values intact?
