Being a Courageous Leader

Have you ever felt like you needed to defend your leadership principles or approach? Where the momentum and status quo seems to be counter to your goals? You would not be alone. Once during a tense re-organization discussion, Tricia was warned to step back with “We have real leaders here. Not ones that focus on the fluffy stuff you do. We don’t have time for all of that.” Although she was tempted to respond with things that would be very inappropriate, Tricia understood that evolving the world of leadership required courage. In this session, expect to consider and adapt several tips for better responses and self-care that help you embrace the courage you are already demonstrating.
