How It Works
The courageous leadership profile helps identify which type of courage leaders choose most often, and highlights which areas require more confidence. It pinpoints the situations in which they are likely to act courageously, as well as those situations in which they are most likely to "play it safe."
The participant workbook offers tips and techniques for raising one's scores in the area that would benefit from the application of more courage.
The Courageous Leadership workshop introduces people to a specific understanding of courage, illustrates how they can become more courageous, and demonstrates the vital role courage has in the workplace and our lives.
