There are a lot of people who are anxious and afraid at the moment.

They are afraid for their jobs, their health and a future that doesn’t look very clear at the moment.

What do we do with that?

How do we influence our kids, our peers, our friends?

What do we do with this fear?

Do we keep feeding it?

Do we add to the finger pointing and name calling?

Do we ignore it?

Do we pretend that everything is normal when it so obviously isn’t?

Or do we provide comfort and confidence?

Do we help others to find calm in the midst of the storm and hope when there is despair?

It’s easy to feed fear.

Fear sells.

It’s a compelling and overwhelming emotion.

But helping others to make calm, rational, sensible decisions that will hold them in good stead in the future…

That’s what real leaders do.

And that’s what we need from you right now.
