I'm not sure about you, but I must have missed the courage course in school. While most people believe courage is an important and valuable trait to have, many shy away from it.
Been there, done that, and suffered the consequences. Today, I choose courage more consistently and have more courageous conversations, because I developed the skills and knowledge to do so. The power of courage was too impactful to keep to myself.
Today, I travel the country speaking on DEI, courageous conversations, and belonging in the workplace.
I see and speak to so many individuals and organizations choosing the comfortable road and status quo over the courageous and transformational one. We're still living through a pandemic, the Great Resignation continues, and many leaders are struggling with how to incorporate wellness into the workplace.
Gathered over the past six years of doing cultural audits, I have seen what individuals and organizations need to move forward. I am now sharing the valuable insights I have learned from my work as a DEI strategist and past personal experiences in the workplace. To fully embrace courage, we must first understand the 7 competencies of courage.
