Lessons from the Birch Tree
Embrace beginnings. Because the birch is one of the first trees to green in spring and propagates areas where ground clearing has occurred, it is a symbol of new beginnings in many cultures. Likewise, we may be due to put our roots in unpopulated soil and simply begin.
Root in community. Birches typically thrive in a grove, much like our own initiatives are more successful when grown with healthy community connections.
Embrace both strength and flexibility. Despite its small diameter, the wood of the nimble birch is quite strong. It is important that organizations balance strength and structure with creativity and relevance.
