The Aspen Trees

A Symbol of Connection



The most effective leaders over the long haul are those who are deeply connected to themselves in healthy ways, and hence to others. Aspens are incredible because of both their resiliency (the only tree that is resilient to wildfires!) and their interconnectedness; Aspens tend to grow in groves and benefit from a shared root system.

I have found tremendous inspiration in the Aspen tree, and I hope you do, too. Like the Aspen, it is when we find the courage to strengthen our roots and connect with those around us that we are at our best.
