The Courage Way

Leadership demands courage. You have to make good decisions while balancing inevitable tensions and knowing when to take risks. You need to keep your values in sight, regardless of the pressures around you. At its core, leadership is a daily, ongoing practice, a journey toward becoming your best self and inviting others to do the same.

Listen in to as Shelly L. Francis, who authored The Courage Way: Leading and Living with Integrity on behalf of the Center for Courage & Renewal, and Parker J. Palmer, founder and senior partner emeritus of the Center, discuss how to access and draw upon courage in every aspect of your life. Discover the key ingredients needed to cultivate courage, and learn how to build trust in yourself and others using the Center for Courage & Renewal’s Circle of Trust® practices.

What in your life right now resonates with the idea of courage and leading a life of integrity? As Shelly Francis writes, “Courage is not only in you—it is you. In your moments of courage, that’s when you meet your true self.” Take this first step to become your true self by connecting to the inner life of leadership.
