Fearless in the Face of CrisisFearless in the Face of Crisis

During the height of the pandemic, I watched leaders falter and doubt themselves. I saw them post online about their supposed leadership inadequacy and I wanted to scream: YOU CAN DO THIS! By the way, I’m talking about friends and clients who are VERY strong leaders. Even they stumbled under the full weight of the uncertainty, fear, and grief they were surrounded by.

Instead of screaming like crazy, I did something way more constructive. I created this on-demand course, Fearless in the Face of Crisis. How can a leader be so exemplary in their skill set that they can handle anything that comes at them? How can they inspire and motivate their team to be their best? Being fearless really matters as a leader,cause let’s face it, there are constant urgencies in this line of work. This course takes the mystery away and gives participants the actual steps needed to embody all that is fearless leadership. Fearless in the Face of Crisis walks leaders through the relevant actions they can use immediately to lead with positivity and confidence. Recalling my own days as a leader, I know this is exactly what leaders need to motivate their staff through uncertain and ever-changing times. So, expect tips, hope and a side of sass,because information alone isn’t enough, people must be inspired to use it!
