We carry high, yet often conflicting expectations of our leaders. Be reasonable but passionate. Seem decisive, but inclusive. Appear visionary, but explicit. Show power, yet humility. Add in emotionally intelligent, caring, impartial, people-oriented, and of course, profit-driven. The list is so long that it often leaves leaders scratching their heads, thinking: "how am I supposed to be all of these things at once?"
Courageous Leadership is a comprehensive training package introducing your team to courage-building; a concept that builds capable and confident leaders who transform organizations.
How It Works
A combination assessment and workshop, Courageous Leadership gives leaders at all levels the foundational skills and abilities they need to become more courageous.
The workshop helps participants by introducing them to a specific understanding of courage, illustrating how they can become more courageous, and demonstrating the vital role courage has in the workplace and our lives.
The Assessment and Workbook tests participants and offers tips and techniques for raising one's scores in the area that would benefit the most.
