The Cost is Carried by One

Our enforced separation and remoteness carries a cost to Organisations, but a greater cost to Communities. Some people will thrive, whilst others will fall silent. It’s likely that we will see broad inequality in the price that is paid.

At this time, as a Social Leader, when we hear triumph, achievement, and noise, our first reaction should be to reach into the silence: which voice can you not hear, who is being left behind.

I have no doubt that Organisations, and broader social structures can adapt: the only question is, what is the cost, and who will pay it.

And our only decision individually is whether we watch from the sides, or reach into the silence.
