Courage is a word that's often used but a little misunderstood. For many of us, we understand courage as the firefighter running into a burning building to save a child, or a soldier committing an act of bravery in battle.
J. R. R. Tolkien, author of "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit" puts it succinctly when he wrote, "Courage is found in the most unlikely of places." An unlikely place for us to demonstrate courage is in the office. We can demonstrate courage as leaders by admitting to our mistakes, as a team to be open and honest and speak with candour, and sometimes we may have to demonstrate the courage to say, "sorry."
My Deep Performance keynote unpacks courage and the role it plays in creating trust as a team, to accelerate what we do each and every day to create time, but most importantly the courage to commit to our convictions, to connect to our purpose and do purposeful things each and every day. So I ask you this, "Do you have the courage to unpack courage "in your workplace?"
