Courageous Leader . . .
Embrace Your Value. Lead from the Front.”
During the past year, I’ve had the honor of bringing a message of Courage to
many leaders in the business world.
Courage was described by Winston Churchill ... Courage is
rightly esteemed the first of human qualities, because, as has been said,
'it is the quality which guarantees all others’.
Courage shows up in many different ways.
Courage was displayed by the New York City First Responders on
9/11/01 and by the people who rescued strangers during the tsunami in
Indonesia in 2014. Both of these were heroic acts of kindness and
Courage in the business world is often invisible to the many
and known only to a few trusted advisors. It is rarely impulsive, and
requires thoughtful preparation because it involves taking a stand,
sometimes unpopular, on behalf of society, the company, the employees or
their own careers.
This type of Courage emerges from an inner conviction
and careful deliberation about high risk decisions.
Nelson Mandela was quoted, “Courage is not the
absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does
not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
During the holiday season, as we approach the New Year, reflect on the past
year and acknowledge the many courageous acts that you’ve taken in the past
You are a Gift. Celebrate the many Gifts that you have
brought to others and envision what’s possible for you in the New Year –
It is in this spirit I say, simply and sincerely... Thank You for
all the Gifts you have given me.
Best Wishes to you and your family for a delightful and festive holiday
Enjoy an inspiring New Year's celebration, %$firstname$%.
people never run far enough on the first wind to find out they’ve got a
second. GIVE YOUR DREAMS ALL YOU’VE GOT, and you’ll be amazed at the
energy that comes out of you.” William James
