Tools for creating and sustaining courageous action in the workplace
Scandals in business and politics have been all over the news in recent years, but aside from a general expression of outrage, not much has changed. This is because the power to change does not come from information, but rather from modeling and practice. In Courage, Gus Lee captures a critical component of leadership: not only being honest and fair but acting beyond what may be obviously required, in a way that may be uncomfortable, and often lonely, but is utterly necessary. He helps the reader develop the "moral intelligence" necessary to root out unethical practices and behaviors by 1) assessing them for "rightness" and integrity, 2) addressing moral failures, and 3) following through with dialogue and direct action. An award-winning lawyer and teacher, Meritorious Service Medal recipient in the Army, four-time corporate whistleblower, Lee has experienced firsthand the power and benefits of moral courage and shares them in this book.
Gus Lee (Colorado Springs, CO) is a bestselling author of China Boy (0-452-27158-4) and nationally recognized expert on leadership and ethics. He is also adjunct staff at the Center for Creative Leadership and the U.S. Department of Justice.
