Since the global pandemic began, the quality of leadership has soared. Leaders in families, congregations, businesses, and communities have risen to the challenge, offering their very best creativity and resourcefulness.
Now, as the adrenaline begins to wear off, those same leaders are growing tired and depleted, wondering, “How do we care for ourselves so that we can care for others for the long run? How do we sustain ourselves so that we can show up for the people we love?”
