Courageous Leadership: Using Courage to Transform the Workplace
Duration: 60 minutes
We have high and often conflicting expectations of leaders. Be reasonable but passionate. Decisive but inclusive. Visionary but explicit. Powerful but humble. Add to that emotionally intelligent, caring, impartial, people-oriented, and of course, profit-driven. The list is so long that it often leaves leaders scratching their heads, thinking: how am I supposed to be all of these things at once?
The answer is courage. It's the backbone leaders need to step up to the plate, face fierce challenges, inspire others, and drive the bottom line. Join author and subject matter expert Bill Treasurer for an informative webinar that will help you transform the leaders in your organization from fearful to fearless.

- Understand the impact fear has on personal and organizational performance
- Three distinct types of courage and how to differentiate among them
- How to create an environment that'supports courageous behavior
- The differences between two different leadership dispositions
- Strategies to become more courageous and inspire those around you
