Have you missed opportunities for career growth because you didn’t speak up? Have you felt that a meeting at work was going in the wrong direction, but didn’t say anything? Have you failed to reach out to an important contact because you doubted what you could bring to the table? Or have you ruminated over the right timing and right phrasing to the point that you didn’t act at all?

This course teaches a three-step framework for cultivating bravery at work. First, we will uncover your Personal Bravery Foundation, illustrated by questions of awareness such as, “How have I been brave in the past?” Second, we will activate your Bravery Muscle Memory, encapsulated in questions of embodied practice such as, “How can I train my bravery consistently so that I can be ready to call on it in bigger situations?” Third, we will seek opportunities to be brave through Daily Bravery Planning, epitomized in questions of forecasting such as, “On which projects will I choose to be brave tomorrow?”

Assignments between class sessions will be experiments in developing bravery in yourself and cultivating bravery for those important to you—both at work and at home. You will be accountable to yourself and classmates for developing bravery skills.
