HOPE-Do you provide it?

Posted by Brenda Yoho

As we welcome April, we are reminded of the beautiful transition of seasons. Spring brings with it a sense of renewal and growth, much like the leadership changes we encounter in our lives. Just as nature transforms with the budding of flowers and the emergence of greenery, leadership transitions offer us opportunities for new beginnings and fresh perspectives.

As I look forward each day, there is one word I always cling to: hope. I have used this word for as long as I can remember. Hope is what we can always cling to when we are faced with change, uncertainty, fear, and all that we face. Over the years, I have thought of hope in this way: Helping Out People Everywhere/Everyday. As an individual growing to be a leader, I have always used each day to make it better for someone else in some way. It is daunting to think you can be the solution for everyone, but if you can help one each day, it is a job well done.


Communication becomes key during times of transition. Clear and transparent communication fosters trust and understanding among team members. It's essential to keep everyone informed about the reasons behind the leadership change, the goals moving forward, and how each individual contributes to the collective success.

If everyone would consider taking on HOPE in this way, we would see a greater decline in negativity, loneliness, depression, and other issues faced each day. As a leader, work HOPE into the fabric of your workplace as a way to build up each other and those around you. It only takes a few minutes to make lifelong changes.

Above all, we approach new leadership with a positive mindset and a commitment to collaboration. By working together, leveraging our collective strengths, and embracing change as an opportunity for growth, we pave the way for a successful and fulfilling journey ahead.

As April unfolds and nature transforms, let us embrace the rhythm of change in leadership with optimism, resilience, and a shared vision for a brighter future. There is always a season for feeling good and feeling safe. Take the time to intentionally work on saying and doing what we know is the hope we all need.

Lead with hope, feeling good, and feeling safe as we transition into this season. It is our mission to provide all those we serve with help in growing in their areas of strength and weakness, opportunities to actively engage, ongoing professional growth and learning, and most importantly, to establish a culture and climate where everyone feels good and safe.
