The Courage Way

Join the Interactive Discussion with Shelly L. Francis & Parker J. Palmer

Leadership demands courage. Being a good leader means making good decisions while balancing inevitable tensions and knowing when to take risks. You also must keep your values in sight, regardless of the pressures around you. At its core, leadership is a daily, ongoing practice, a journey toward becoming your best self and inviting others to do the same.

Listen in to two free webinar discussions with Shelly L. Francis, who authored The Courage Way: Leading and Living with Integrity on behalf of the Center for Courage & Renewal. Shelly will discuss how to access and draw upon courage in every aspect of your life. She’ll be joined by Parker J. Palmer, founder and senior partner emeritus of the Center, who wrote the foreword to The Courage Way.

Discover your courage and learn more about:

  • The key ingredients needed to cultivate courage.
  • How to build trust in ourselves and in others using the Center for Courage & Renewal’s Circle of Trust® practices.
  • How to become your true self by connecting to the inner life of leadership.
