A Call to Courage
Leaders are called to courage daily, especially in these uncertain and vulnerable times. In the absence of brave leadership, toxic cultures emerge in which people:
These behaviors damage morale, corrode trust, decrease the ability to attract and retain talent, foster disengagement, and undermine productivity and results.
BRAVE LEADERS lean into uncertainty and discomfort, calmly navigate conflict, have the hard conversations, practice their values and choose courage over comfort.
The good news is that courage is a skillset that is teachable, measurable and observable. As a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator with over 25 years of experience in leadership development and coaching, I understand the challenges you face and can guide you in becoming the courageous leader you want to be and that your team deserves.
Katie managed a complex conversation with some very 'philosophical' audience members impeccably well, navigating the thorny issues raised while tying the discussion back to the frameworks and ideas we were discussing. (Workshop participant, Google)
My biggest challenge was over-committing. It felt like a personality trait that I couldn't change. What has changed for me after participating in this program is that I realized saying yes and no is more of a muscle that I need to tone and strengthen. I won't get better unless I practice. And I won't succeed without some accountability. If you are considering engaging in this work, I sat that 100% should give it a shot! (Workshop participant, Google)
The discussion on vulnerability is one that we needed to have, as individuals, and as a team. It's a dimension that is important for us to reinforce in order to allow people to feel comfortable taking risks in our high performance / results - driven organization. (Workshop participant, Google)
