There is a lot about the past that should make us uncomfortable. As long as people have been around we have found ways to cause problems and land in conflict.
As leaders, it is our job to navigate our teams and organizations to better places. We desire and deserve better expectations and superior results.
In the process we must do what we can to fix the errors of the past. That does not mean we must burn it to the ground. That does not mean that we must disrespect all that came before.
It is possible to honor the parts of the past we grew from, while growing in ways that make the present and the future much better.
Honor the past. And, then move ahead.
