Do you have the courage of your convictions? | Strategy Business
The importance of having courage in the workplace and taking risks to make decisions that benefit the company, even if unpopular, is discussed by executives and managers.
Building courage means having the confidence to make decisions, even when there is no clear answer, and doing what’s best for the company, even if it will make people unhappy. Sticking to values and taking responsibility to impact and influence the organization are also key. CEOs and senior leaders are looking for managers who take risks and have failed but learned from it. However, some companies have a culture that encourages a more risk-averse approach, and employees who try things that don’t work out can pay a penalty. In today’s rapidly changing business world, having courage is essential to stay ahead.
