“When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person that walked in. That’s what the storm is about.”
~ Haruki Murakami
“When the storm rips you to pieces you get to decide how to put yourself back together again.”
~ Bryant McGill
“There are some things you can only learn in a storm.”
~ Joel Osteen
“You can’t calm the storm … so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.”
~ Tiber Hawkeye
It is not an Ontario thunder and lightning storm lending inspiration today. It is an Alberta snow storm. I am stuck in a very unfamiliar place, on a motor coach (fancy name for a bus) on the road north to Edmonton! An Alberta blizzard is all around.
A storm can hit anytime. In any place! In nature or in our workplace. Whatever a storm brings, there is always a solution. I suggest that a storm analogy is a learning moment. A thoughtful leadership will learn significant intelligence from a storm. A transformational leader will see the opportunities of a storm and put aside fear and dread.
When BMG walks into a storm, our associates are prepared to guide you to a calmer place where the solutions can be found. Our BMG Associates will guide through the seemingly impossible storm and help make after the storm possible.
