Though the creators did not know it at the time, the original lollipop was likely created thousands of years ago by someone who was collecting honey from beehives with a stick. Since it’s creation, the lollipop has seen many different forms, whether it be candy or medicine. Several years ago, the lollipop took on a different form: lollipop moments.
In his TEDx talk (below), Drew Dudley Lollipop moments are a moment when someone said or did something that changed our lives and insists upon their importance. Dudley goes on to say that we need to redefine leadership so that we focus on creating, acknowledging, and saying thank you for lollipop moments.
While we wish we could share lollipops and their moments with you in person, we hope that everyone is staying safe and healthy. Thank you for all the lollipop moments that you have provided us over the years, we look forward to many more to come.
