    Is it over yet? Post-pandemic considerations

    In this episode of The Leader's Journey Podcast, Trisha and Jim are reflecting on the past two years, what they've learned, how things have changed, and what they can see differently now from a different vantage point.
    In part of the episode, Jim and Trisha reflect on a few podcasts and blog posts they shared during the early stages of the pandemic. We wanted to encourage you to review those resources and reflect on the leadership challenges you've faced in the last two years to learn from them and take that learning into the future. Here are a couple of those resources:
    ​Systems Thinking in Anxious Times​ ​Leading in Uncertain Times (COVID-19)​ ​After the Adrenaline: Self-care in a Time of Crisis​ ​The Big Picture: Pandemic, Anxiety, and Society In our most recent newsletter, Trisha shared three things she hopes people will reflect on as they read and listen to the resources above and this episode of the podcast.
    After reviewing the resources above and listening to this episode of the podcast, we want to hear from you. What do you notice when you reflect on your role as a leader over the past two years?
    Conversation Overview:
    So is the pandemic over? Where are we now? Reflecting on a few of our podcasts and blogs from early stages of the pandemic What do leaders know now that we didn’t know before? What systems principles do we need to remember in this time?
