Leading with Emotional Courage

For everyone.

Leadership means taking action in a way that inspires others to join you. Whether you are in a company, a relationship, or acting in your own life, you have the opportunity to lead. The secret to powerful leadership lies in choosing to feel the discomfort and uncertainty that comes with being a leader. Emotional courage is what you need in order to feel the full range of your emotions. If you are willing to feel everything, you can do anything.

This highly experiential program based on Peter Bregman’s forthcoming book and his work with CEOs and senior leaders helps you develop your emotional courage and break long-standing, ineffective habits. Peter guides you to experiment with taking risks in the way you think, act, communicate, and lead.

Through fun and effective exercises, learn how to grow emotional courage and increase your ability to

  • Raise hard-to-talk-about issues in a way that others agree to address them
  • Act courageously in risky situations
  • Connect with people and inspire their commitment
  • Stay grounded in the face of success, failure, or uncertainty
  • Respond productively to opposition without losing your focus
  • Communicate skillfully in the presence of strong emotions.

Emotional courage is a critical competency that closes the gap between knowing what you want to do and actually doing it. It’s the key to taking powerful, skillful action to achieve what’s most important to you. Come explore how to transform your capability to act powerfully and courageously in your life, in your work, and in the world.
