Exploring Our Value of Courage
Exploring Our Team Values
Over the next five weeks, we’re exploring our team values which are generosity, courage, wisdom, team, and fun. In each episode, we’re diving into where our values come from, what they mean, and how we are applying them to our team, our relationships, and ourselves.
In this episode, we explore our team value of courage. We discuss the meaning of courage, our experiences acting courageously through our individual Strengths, and share examples of courageous acts we’ve experienced from clients and loved ones. We also discuss the varying ways courage can be presented and why courage is one of our most important team values.
Courage is defined as the ability to do something frightening or strength in the face of pain or grief, but being courageous is more than being fearless or strong. At Leadership Vision, we believe courage begins with a humble acceptance of self. It’s the courage to accept who you are and how you engage with the world around you. Courage is both an expression in a moment and also a knowledge over time. It evolves, matures, and becomes more observant. Courage is the expression of your true identity.
Why the Value of Courage?
Values are important because they anchor us and keep us steady when things shift and change. They are the bedrock of our very being, everything that we try to do in life is anchored on that bedrock. Values shape our behaviors, what we believe in, and our relationships with the world around us.
Our value of courage is at the root of everything we do at Leadership Vision. We strive to help people understand who they are by accepting their Strengths and limitations and recognize the amazing things they can contribute to their teams, communities, and the world.
