mistape-peter-bregmanThe highly sought after executive coach will unlock the secrets of highly successful leaders – no matter role or level in the hierarchy – and he will pinpoint the missing ingredient that makes all the difference: Emotional Courage. Emotional Courage distinguishes powerful leaders from weak ones. It means speaking up when others are silent and remaining steadfast, grounded, and measured in the face of uncertainty. It means responding productively to political opposition—maybe even bad-faith backstabbing—without getting sidetracked, distracted, or losing focus. Peter will explain why emotional courage is the key to having hard conversations, creating accountability, and inspiring action on your most important work.
