Just sit back and literally allow and tune into what is going on energetically.” “I think it's our responsibility as leaders to create workplaces where people feel safe enough to bring more of themselves into the work environment.” “Life has answers to everything if we're really prepared to listen.” “Find another weird edgy hobby.”
