Believe – 2024

Believe – 2024: Drawing Inspiration from “Yes, Virginia” for Business and Change Leadership in the New Year.

 

Each Christmas season, Macy's iconic store in New York City adorns its façade with a single, powerful word: "Believe."

This tradition is inspired by the timeless message of the New York Sun’s 1897 editorial "Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus." A young girl named Virginia had written a letter to the newspaper wondering whether Santa Claus existed. She asked for confirmation from a credible source while her friends mocked her for what she believed to be true. The response she received from Francis Pharcellus Church became one of the most famous editorials in newspaper history. Its message is a timeless and heartwarming affirmation of the existence of Santa Claus, not as a person but as coming to life through our positive actions and embodiment of values such as hope and goodwill. The now-famous editorial symbolizes the powerful spirit of childhood wonder, hope, and joy. Transcending its original context, it is a rallying cry urging us to translate our beliefs and hopes into positive action.

5 Steps for Creating Mindful & Adaptive “New Work” Strategies

 

For the last three years, companies have seen tremendous advantages in staying remote or hybrid.
