Did you know that “61% of us deny the power of our own ideas because we are to busy trying to work out how to fit in”- Nilofer Merchant.
Imagine the innovation that could be created in your organisation if fear did not hold your people back. Imagine the diversity of a workplace that encouraged people to bring their whole self to work.
Fear is often the number one barrier holding individuals back from stepping into positive change, at work and in life. Many temper themselves and their brilliant ideas due to fear of failure, being exposed as an imposter or what others might think. This eye opening, tactics based program identifies what’s holding your talent back and teaches them how to use fear to positively influence change, build confidence and practice resilience.
The Bravery Masterclass is a powerful way to innovatively shift the culture of your business by making fear a positive emotion that is shared, problem solved collectively, and celebrated when it is faced, ultimately leading to more innovative thinking and improved change capability.
