COURAGEOUS LEADERS: BE THE LEADER YOU WANT TO WORK FOR

As a leader, you’re barraged with problems every day, and sometimes it’s easier to take the path of least resistance. You don’t speak up because it might rock the boat. You procrastinate on a decision or don’t try that new idea because you’re afraid of failure. Or, you don’t invite feedback because you might not like what you hear. In these moments, you’re missing opportunities, you’re wasting money, and you’re eroding your team members’ trust.

Building your reputation as a courageous leader doesn’t necessarily mean making big, bold, game-changing moves. It happens every day, little by little, as you own your team members’ strengths, speak up, stand out, and dare to take appropriate risks.
