Summary Annotation From fieldwork that has spanned four continents and dozens of countries comes a simple, elegant, yet powerful model for acting with courage when faced with moments of truth and individual strength and character are put to the test. With thought-provoking case studies, the authors' unique Courage Index questionnaire, and other hands-on tools, The Courage to Act offers a simple yet dynamic approach for assessing, fostering, teaching, and learning courage. The authors detail the five factors of courage needed to face adversity, deal with ambiguity, seize opportunities before they get away, and work through rather than avoid conflicts: candor, purpose, will, rigor, and risk.
Annotation Pragmatic and practical, "The Courage to Act" puts the skills to act with courage within reach of ordinary people who want to achieve extraordinary results at work. With case studies, a set of assessment tools, and field-tested experience, the authors lay out the five factors needed to face adversity and make extraordinary things happen.
