The Courage To Lead


Courage is a primary and necessary virtue for effective behavior in all walks of life in all times and places, and leaders generally require extra doses of courage, since they must speak up and take responsibility for results when others fail to do so. This program notes that courage is not the absence of fear but the recognition that something else is more important than fear. And for leaders, the most critical form of courage is moral courage, the recognition that the welfare of others is more important than one’s own personal safety. (38:00)
