Courageous Leadership - An Introduction to the Practice of Courage-Building with Bill Treasurer -- Leadership Skills TeleSeminar
“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
-– Anais Nin
Courage is the first virtue…because it makes all the other virtues possible.
If that’s true, than courage is the first business virtue too.
Why? Because it makes so many other business concepts possible. Leadership, for example, takes bold action and decisive judgment. It takes courage.
Innovation takes creating ground-breaking, but tradition-defying, ideas. It takes courage.
Sales takes knocking on the door in the face of rejection. It takes courage.
In fact, courage is so important to these concepts that they don’t exist in the absence of courage.
Despite the importance of courage to business success, there have been no training programs dedicated solely on building workforce courage --- until now.
This session will focus on inspiring more courageous behavior in yourself and in those you work with. Specifically, in this session, you’ll learn:
- Why fear and comfort are bad for business
- The “Three Buckets of Courage” and how to differentiate among them
- The differences between managers who encourage workers, and those who discourage them (Fillers and Spillers)
- Tips on how to be more courageous yourself, and how to inspire more courageous behavior among your coworkers and employees
