The hardest part of a leader’s job isn’t staying organized, meeting deliverable dates or staying on budget.  It can be inspiring yourself and your team to move past the debilitation effects of discomfort and fear.  Learn how to model courageous behavior and tackle challenging conversations, confront colleagues, and resolve conflicts by creating an environment where people feel safe taking chances and speaking up.

Aristotle referred to courage as the first virtue because it makes all other virtues possible.  Courage is central to leadership, innovation and entrepreneurism.  As leaders we need to be aware of the dangers that comfort and fear present, and be equipped with strategies to minimize them in yourself as well as those who work for you.

This workshop is based upon the work of Bill Treasurer in his book, Courage Goes to Work and the Courageous Leader Assessment. The Courageous Leader Assessment helps individuals identify which courage type they are most confident in and in which they could use more confidence.  The assessment results can be instrumental in helping individuals identify the situations in which they are likely to act courageously, as well as those situation in which they are likely to “play it safe.”
