Top of Mind Thursday memo from leverage2market.com
As the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, an increased emphasis has been put on masks as a way to stop transmission of the virus.

Initially, the focus was on masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) for medical providers and first responders--to keep them healthy and safe as they cared for others. 
More recently, the directive from medical experts has been that we should all wear masks to protect ourselves and others--as the virus can spread silently from asymptomatic people. 
While some people are revolting against the mask requirements, others have found a new opportunity to express their creativity. No longer are we limited to the white paper throw-away surgical or N95 masks we see in hospitals. There are now thousands of mask and face covering designs available in a multitude of fabrics and designs.
Choose a mask featuring your favorite sports team, celebrity, or TV show. Order a face covering that reflects your hobbies or interests. Wear a different mask for the day of the week, or get a variety to match your wardrobe. 
My current favorite was the one I saw in the supermarket yesterday. A man walked by me with a mask that said, STAY SIX FEET AWAY FROM ME...printed on the mask!
Even in the face of a pandemic, people rise to the occasion with humor and creativity--and the entrepreneurial spirit prevails yet again.
What opportunities do you have in your organization to unmask creativity during this challenging time?
