As we go through life, we all experience numerous situations that require courage, whether it’s the courage to overcome a perceived failure, to pursue a desired career path or relationship, or simply the courage to let ourselves feel uncomfortable emotions. However, particularly when we feel overwhelmed or depleted, it can be difficult to summon the courage to follow our own “true north,” or true selves. 

Known as the “courage doctor” for organizations because of her focus on courage implementation to increase capacity for creativity and innovation, CB Bowman is a venerated expert in courageous leadership. She is the CEO of the Association of Corporate Executive Coaches and has earned countless accolades and distinctions, including being named one of the top 50 coaches in the world by Thinkers50, one of the top 15 experts in branding by Global Gurus, and among the top 50 thought leaders on leadership, diversity, and inclusion by Thinkers360. CB is also the host of an amazing videocast and podcast titled “Courage to Leap and Lead,” and her keynotes inspire people to re-envision how they think about courage in terms of profitability and a willingness to see failure as a success. 

In Episode 180 of The MINDSet Game® podcast, CB shares how courage has played a role in her personal and professional lives as she discusses the following:

  • Why it’s important to allow yourself to feel a range of emotions, including imposter syndrome, when striving to transform the fear of failure into success – and then taking charge of those emotions
  • How to persevere through stress and burnout to continue moving towards your true north
  • Tips for navigating the delicate balance of being true to yourself while also honoring the feelings of those you care about
