Leadership is having the courage to act in a way that shows others that we are willing to take a chance…because the gains are worth the risks and status quo is not an option.
Fear shows up in many different ways. Sometimes we shut down and retreat. Maybe we become agitated and lash out. Sometimes we ignore it as if the challenge will go away with time. Or, we might create distractions so others don’t see that we are afraid.
When a leader observes this behavior in others they become a courage coach. When a leader sees this behavior in themselves, they seek a courage coach.
