Leadership Isn't For Cowards offers no nonsense straightforward steps to leading courageously and practical applicable steps to driving performance while maintaining a great place to work. It presents the reasons people don't lead courageously and the steps to break through the resistance most leaders have.Courageous leadership means toughing your approach by being rigorous in the application of your values and heartbeat through the company culture. It means confronting people, challenging people, and not letting them get away with being less than you know they can be.The path to courageous leadership has six components: Accept Your Current Circumstances, Take Responsibility, Take Action, Acknowledge Progress, Commit to Lifelong Learning, and Kindle Relationships. These manageable steps include:Identify the area in your business or life where a gap exists between your current reality and your desired reality.Align yourself with a person or a group of people who can commit to holding you accountable for closing the gap.Make a specific commitment to the outcome(s) you want and assign dates to them.
