The Seven Acts of Courage:
Bold Leadership for a Wholehearted Life
Robert "Dusty" Staub @StaubLeadership
This self-help book deals once again with the emptiness in people’s lives, even if their careers are flourishing. In this book, Robert E. Staub, II, a marital and family therapist, as well as author of The Heart of Leadership, discusses seven specific acts of courage that can lead to a happier life. They are the courage to dream and put forth that dream, to see current reality, to confront, to be confronted, to learn and grow, to be vulnerable and the courage to act. The courage is not to be found in one great heroic act, but in taking action every day based on what you believe is right, facing reality with conviction and learning when to persist in the fact of doubts, fears and when to take a new approach.
