The Courage to Lead

Posted by Ann Deaton Share Your Voice

It takes courage to be a leader and it also takes courage to follow. According to Bill Treasurer (Courage Goes to Work), there are three types of courage—being courageous enough to trust others whose actions can injure us, the courage to try something new, and the courage to tell—to speak out when you feel strongly about something when your view differs from those around you. We each need all three kinds of courage to be successful and lead a full life. Notice today when you are being courageous, and encourage others to be courageous too by making it safe to make mistakes.

Small Ann Deaton I am a leadership coach, and Managing Partner in Bounce. I love to coach and facilitate with individuals and systems experiencing significant change and growth. The clients I work with, regardless of their age or position, are talented and creative individuals willing to look with fresh eyes at their challenges and opportunities, and to take action based on their discoveries. As a result, they find that they are capable of accomplishing far greater things than they ever imagined. What do you want to accomplish today? Who do you want to be?
