Creating a Culture of Courage™: The New Leadership Challenge
As companies are demanding that employees take more risks, do more with less, and try to anticipate the future, courage has become a critical and often overlooked element of every leader's skill set and "scorecard." We can no longer be averse to taking risks or remain complacent in any organization -- for success depends almost entirely on our ability to make difficult decisions confidently and quickly… about our businesses, about our careers and about our lives.
The Courage to Innovate™: The Corporate & Entrepreneurial Imperative
Many of us are being asked every day to become more "Entrepreneurial" in how we address our organizations and businesses. Whether we reside in small organizations looking for that competitive edge or in large and cumbersome organizations seeking a better way to do business… it takes courage… courage to lead… courage to risk… and most importantly, it takes courage to innovate. The organizations that will face the future successfully and with a renewed spirit of innovation will need to look inside themselves to see if they have the courage to work differently and more effectively.
