“Will you choose to rise above the fray?”

This challenge was offered by a speaker at last month’s Ohio Diversity and Leadership Conference. Not only is it appropriate for leaders but, also, for all of us as we wind down this highly charged election season.

Opinions are strong, emotions are powerful, chaos seems to reign sometimes. While we cannot control the words and actions of those around us, we can choose how to respond. It is a choice we must make every day.

I’ll ask one more time, “Will you choose to rise above the fray?”
