“Change begins with an honest conversation.”
Anytime we want to learn, grow, develop or change as leaders, we must be honest with ourselves about what’s currently true. And when it comes to the growth we hope to see in building bridges racially, that can prove challenging. Latasha Morrison, founder of Be the Bridge and author of a book by the same name, is a gracious and honest guide in how to approach this learning journey. Listen in as she and Jenni Catron discuss opportunities to grow toward racial healing in this week’s episode of the podcast. Though the conversation took place prior to the greater public’s knowledge of the death of Ahmaud Arbery, the truths and encouragement contained within are perfectly timely.
In this conversation, you’ll learn:
- The best posture to take in order to listen and learn
- What obstacles exist to racial healing
- Next steps we can take toward racial healing
- How to learn about racial reconciliation without hurting or exhausting those who teach
- The purpose and helpfulness of lament
- How to leverage what you have in the pursuit of racial healing
