As an experienced leader, you’ve successfully climbed many leadership performance mountains before. Some were higher than others. Some were extremely frustrating. Maybe you needed special skills or additional resources. No matter the obstacles, you achieved success.
And, today seems different. Why is that?
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?
Many leadership developmentand financial experts are touting the fact that we live in an Era of Exponential Growth, Digital Disruption, and Cancel Culture. I agree. In addition, I believe we are experiencing a Fear Pandemic.
Leaders ask me, “What prompts you to write about Courageous Leadership?”
The more relevant question is, “When did you get interested in stress/fear and its impact on human flourishing?”
