How to be Courageous Leader with Shelly L. Francis – Episode 48

June 6, 2018

Courage is the main quality of leadership, in my opinion, no matter where it is exercised. Usually it implies some risk – especially in new undertakings.
– Walt Disney

As leaders, we all face difficult circumstances. How to be a courageous leader is definitely a question which I have struggled with in the past to find the answer for. I can tell you that there is no perfect answer for everyone. We all have to figure it out in our own way.  However, we can definitely learn how to be a courageous leader through the experiences of others to enable us to find our path.

My guest in this episode went on a journey to answer the question of how we can be a courageous leader. Shelly L. Francis has been the marketing and communications director at the Center for Courage & Renewal since mid-2012. Before coming to the Center, Shelly directed trade marketing and publicity for multi-media publisher Sounds True, Inc. Her career has spanned international program management, web design, corporate communications, trade journals, and software manuals. Shelly wrote The Courage Way: Leading and Living with Integrity (February 2018) on behalf of the Center for Courage & Renewal. During this episode we cover the following topics:

  • The motivation behind writing the book
  • Courage Takes Trust
  • The Courage to Answer Your Calling
  • The Courage to Stay or to Leave
