5 Videos to Strengthen Your Courageous Leadership Influence (Leadership Courage)
At the beginning of 2022 I chose “Courage” as my leadership development focus word.
As I reflect on this powerful word I realize that courage has been an intricate part of all the articles, blogs, and books I’ve written over the years… Why is it so important to me?
C – Character, Confidence, and Connection – 3 of my favorite “C” words! They were the foundation for Millennials Matter. Now, in the Sisu Courage Series, they are the three areas that we focus on for building courage for our leadership journey.
O – Optimism is a character quality that I write about in Millennials Matter – Proven Strategies for Building Your Next-Gen Leader. In the Courage Series, we discover that by looking at our challenges with an optimistic mindset, we are able to see new opportunities to make a positive difference.
U – The UN-Culture series focused on the 5 Success Mindsets we need to say NO to – the “un-words” that destroy our leadership influence. It takes courage to say NO to being UN-focused; UN-creative; and UN-productive.
R – Resilience is the character quality that is fueled by courage. It’s the ability to get up when we fall, to courageously move forward when challenges might cause us to feel stuck.
A – Accountability is one of my favorite leadership strategies. It’s something that I talk and write about so often, that some of my friends jokingly call me “The Accountability Queen!” Accountability enables us to accept responsibility for our choices and results.
G – Gratitude, my One Word for 2023, will be the focus of my next article series. I realize that it requires a special brand of courage, Sisu Courage, to be grateful in the midst of daunting leadership mountains.
E – Empathy is in short supply in today’s culture. When we are caught up in our own struggles, it’s easy to lose sight of what others are dealing with. We might forget about the power of connection. A courageous leadership heart always strives to lovingly serve others, even while facing our own challenges.
In The Sisu Courage Series, I take a deep dive into these, and other leadership strategies you need for a world filled with fear, chaos, and disruption.
