November’s word is courage: Being brave enough to do what you should do even when you’re afraid.

Courage is a challenge for all of us in one way or another. Our fears and insecurities as kids may be different than what we feel now as adults, but they are no less real. As adults, we work harder to hide those, to seem brave, and to appear as if nothing can get to us.

Showing some level of vulnerability makes us real, makes us trustworthy, and helps us to practice being brave. Other than the simple (yet difficult!) act of admitting when we have made a mistake, what might vulnerability and courage look like at work?

  • Offer negative feedback in a professional manner to an individual that needs to hear it in order to improve his/her practice.
  • Try a new and challenging piece of technology when you realize it could be of great benefit, but it will be difficult to master.
  • Present something new in front of a group.
