How To Use Courage To Transform The Workplace with best selling author Bill Treasurer -- Recorded Leadership TeleSeminar

Carnival of SoulsImage via Wikipedia

Courage is critical to personal and organizational success. But in times of economic instability, such as right now, fear directs workers’ behaviors, causing them to be distracted, afraid, and unproductive…just when their companies need them to be the opposite.

Fear is bad for business because it causes workers to become overly preoccupied with safety-seeking.

Courageous workers, by contrast, step up to challenges, seek out leadership roles, and assert innovative ideas…all for the good of the company.

This teleseminar will provide practical strategies for building workforce courage so workers can become “opportunity seekers”.

Key Topics to be Covered:

  • The impact that fear and comfort have on individual performance
  • Three distinct types of courage and how to differentiate among them
  • How to create an environment that supports courageous behavior
  • The differences between managers who encourage workers, and those who discourage them, what Bill calls Fillers and Spillers
  • Tips on how to be more courageous and how to inspire more courageous behavior among those you lead

The workplace is fraught with daily challenges—challenges that may provoke fear, stress, or even excitement; but challenges nonetheless. These challenges can, potentially, inspire our courage or undermine our performance. This teleseminar will help attendees enlarge their Courage Capacity so they can meet organizational challenges with more confidence and less fear.
