Courage lays at the foundation of exceptional leadership

The mission of Global Courage is to embolden braver leadership to create a better world.

Never before has it been more important for leaders to lay their reputation on the line for the sake of a better future.

Global Courage is a bespoke leadership consultancy

True leadership is not dependent on title or position. It is born from the decision to embrace our innate power to affect change and to commit to a cause greater than oneself. In particular, to:

  • Uphold integrity without compromise, prioritizing principle over profit or power
  • Foster inclusiveness, civility and advocate for equality in all domains
  • Take decisive action in our increasingly accelerated and uncertain world
  • Set a bold vision that aligns with a compelling purpose and engage others in pursuing it
  • Act with compassion and foster human-centered workplaces
  • Embolden others to leverage their strengths as leaders and change makers
  • Speak out publicly against all actions taken that undermine or disrespect the freedom and value of others.


Create a more equitable, compassionate and sustainable world in which all people not only have the opportunity to fulfill their potential but emboldened with the courage to make their unique mark on the world.


Equip current and future leaders with the mindset, courage and skills needed to act with integrity, make better decisions and be more effective change-makers in their organizations and the wider community.


Based on the belief that to create a better – more equitable, tolerant and sustainable – world we must create a braver world and that to create a braver world we must embolden people to be braver leaders, beginning with how they lead themselves.


Equip current and future leaders with the self-awareness, skills and mindset to make smarter, bolder and better decisions that are not driven by fear of what might go wrong but of commitment to making things more right.

The world is hungry for people to step into their power to affect change. When we permit our fear of failure or losing face keep us from taking bold action, we become implicit in perpetuating the status quo. It is by daring to act with the courage we wish to see more of in our leaders that we grow our capacity for leadership and amplify our presence in the world.
