Coaching for Courageous Leadership
Many people don't identify themselves as leaders. So let us clear up what we mean when we use that term. We like Brené Brown's definition:
A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and who has the courage to develop that potential.
Regardless of title, coaching for courageous leadership starts with helping your team get clear on your values and how they are expressed in your work. Together we will explore which arenas you want to boldly walk into together, and what keeps you stuck with your hand on the door.
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better.
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again,
because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause;
who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.."
Theodore Roosevelt, the Man in the Arena
