Aristotle called it the first of human qualities as it made all the other qualities possible—COURAGE. This holds true in our lives as much as in our teams and organizations.

Leadership is not a popularity contest; my own experience and professional practice coaching executives and organizational leaders have shown courage to be the one leadership quality that strengthens all the other qualities that we aspire to display.

How do we innovate if we want to stay in the safety of the tried and tested, how does a sales team persist in the face of rejection? How do we stand up and give feedback to a peer who engages in public bullying? How do we trust the new executive on the team to take charge of a big project? How do we find the courage to act upon harsh feedback? How do we find the humility to rebuild the trust that has been broken?

Every single step that humanity has taken forward is steeped in COURAGE.

Not all heroes wear capes: one reaches out to a new colleague who is struggling, another one makes sure that his people are progressing and provided with the learning they need before he leaves. Another makes sure that maternity leave in their Malaysian organization is on par with those of the European Head office. A senior executive decides to promote diversity and inclusion in the face of non-inclusive behaviours. What did it take?

How can we be better at tackling the elephant in the room, how can we keep going in the face of challenges? What are the daily and consistent steps that executives can take to ensure the betterment of themselves, their teams and their organisations?

The good news is that courage is not an inherent trait but an acquired skill.

Join Lola Chetti, Executive coach and Provider of Coach Accredited Training & Leadership Development Programs on the 3rd of October from 8:30-10:00am at Mettā to discuss tips and strategies on how we can be leaders who inspire courage and build our own courage at work—to dare to be and do better.
