Leadership Matters

Life has changed dramatically over the past weeks, and we must expect that it will continue to veer far from normal for quite some time.

The data on this pandemic indicates that there will be many more cases of COVID-19 in the upcoming weeks and all of us—particularly leaders—need to do everything we can to lead well through this challenging time.

Remember, at Carpenter Smith Consulting, we believe that:

Leadership is the willingness to influence
your world and the willingness to be influenced
by your world, regardless of role or title.

We’re committed now more than ever to support you in your leadership so that you can create success for you and your world.

In addition to our regular Monday Morning Business Coach email, we’ll be sending out a second post each week to help you in navigating this new virtual world that we’re working in. Those posts can be found below:
