Off to see the wizard – Ways to encourage courage!
The tempting thing about the status quo is that it is easy. It requires no work, no effort, and no courage. It can be comfortable, and this is a huge danger to the workplace. You want your employees to be active, to constantly be growing. You want a courageous workforce who will push themselves and others to greatness. How can you inspire these qualities in your team? Create an environment where employees can feel they are able to take risks. If there is fear of punishment for failure, you will understandably see lower levels of courage in the office. Help them find resilience after a failure. If you see an employee who you think can handle more responsibility, give it to them. Push them to grow! The absolute best way to inspire courage in your employees is to be courageous yourself. Lead by example, steadily take smart risks, and try new things. If you create a workplace where courage can thrive, you will not only see higher levels of engagement and morale from your workers, you will feel more engaged yourself!
