A3: If there is time to reflect, ruminate and reframe you may see a challenge as an opportunity but that takes time and space. Making and finding time and space is important for leaders. Easy to say, hard to do at times. #WarmDemanders

A2B: Often staff want decisions as you are walking through the door as that is what is first on their mind. Slowing down, listening and gathering info and making decisions later in the day might save knee jerk reactions and poor decision making. #WarmDemanders

A2: I think it really depends on the type of decision that needs to be made. Crisis and quick decisions need to be made regardless of the time of day. And those that take time and evidence could be made at anytime with thought and consideration. #WarmDemanders

A1: It may be perceived as another hard thing to do. It may mean changing behavior and habits at a very challenging time. It may unintentially add pressure not relieve it. #WarmDemanders
