Courage is often referred to as the first virtue in business and leadership. Courage allows you to do things that are hard, scary and challenging. The sacrifice paid is often to encounter your fear. There is a danger is the status quo, there is the risk in action and also a risk of inaction as competitors start to bypass us.

Fear of failure

How do you get to the point where you know you might fail but you feel like it is the right thing to do right now? Fear of failure and fear of looking foolish is a big block for many, eventually, you need to get to the stage that you realize the risk is bigger by not acting

In your courage building training programs what are your steps to get people to become comfortable with being courageous. Bill breaks it down into three types of courageous and working through each separately: try courage, trust courage and tell courage. By introducing these types of courage then look what is worth applying courage to?

How do you help people uncover their “high dive”:

Where are you playing it too safe? What are you avoiding doing that you know you should be doing? With those answers, you can be pointed into the direction of the purposeful thing you should be doing and addressing the fear.

Vulnerability, how do you help people get over that?

What are your criteria for trust? How does it relate to relationships? Who do you trust the most? What are the characteristics of that person? If you don’t have trust, it impacts results. In a leadership role, you need to have trust to have a strong team.

Tell – finding your assertiveness:

It’s holding you back and it’s holding back others from the benefits they could receive if you had the courage to cough up your voice.
