It’s the ability to be able to push past the most common problems that leaders face today – Fear, Fatigue and Frustration.

1. Lead by example: One of the most effective ways to inspire courage in your team is to lead by example. Show your team that you’re willing to take risks and make difficult decisions, even when it’s not easy and push past that fear. This will demonstrate that you have confidence in your abilities and that you trust your team to do the same.

2. Communicate openly and honestly: Being a courageous leader also means being transparent and honest with your team. Communicate openly and honestly with your team members, even when the news is difficult. By being upfront and honest, you’ll earn the trust and respect of your team, which is essential to fostering a culture of courage. A great way to do this is to share you story. What past experiences can you draw upon that will help you move forward.

3. Step out of your comfort zone and raise the level of necessity required by 10%: Encourage your team members to take risks and try new things. Reward those who step out of their comfort zones and try new things, even if they fail. By encouraging risk-taking, you’ll help your team members develop their courage and become more confident in their abilities. It opens the doors to vulnerability, builds confidence and allows you to all honour the struggle along the way, which is vital for growth.

4. Empower and inspire greatness: Give your team members the autonomy and resources they need to succeed. Empower them to make decisions and take ownership of their work. This will help them develop their courage and become more confident in their abilities. In fact, take it one step further and ask them to come up with a new initiative in the topic of choice to see what ideas can be achieved when everyone is working together.

Being a courageous leader takes time, effort, and a willingness to take risks. By following these strategies and leading by example, you can become the most courageous leader you can be and help your team members become courageous as well.
