It is not the critic that 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… 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.
150 leaders across industries were asked what the future of leadership is. The #1 answer: We need braver leaders and more courageous cultures. There are four specific skills of courageous leadership. They are teachable, measurable, and observable.
Do you want to show up in the arena at work and life? Do you want to be a courageous leader and foster a brave team? Are you entering management and want to learn the keys to engaging your workforce?
