Leaders Need Courage

Many organisations across the world currently feel pushed, squeezed or pulled and more than ever before, leaders need courage.

Physical courage to at all times be transparent, honest and call forth political game playing and have the moral courage to do what needs to be done, even though it will at first be seen to be unpopular and can lead to a great deal of criticism.  Moral courage is born out of honesty and truthfulness and calls for leaders to lead from the inside out, not the traditional way of outside in.  When leaders lead from the inside out, they have developed an innate inner self belief which means courage to stand up for what they think is right, even though that might be uncomfortable.

When you do, your followers will have a greater degree of trust in you and you will sleep better at night. 

Knowing you have had the courage to lead from the heart and think things through from the head.
