Sandra Ford Walston | Keynote Speaker | Author |Courage Coach
Have you ever gone through your work day and looked in the mirror and said, “I wish I’d had more courage!”? My interactive approach as a speaker goes beyond being motivational: it brings a shift from complacency (a courage killer) to stepping up to apply the most important virtue: courage! Courrrrage! Yes, this word is hard to say! When was the last time you used it? Reflect on these three questions: 1. What’s your definition of courage and why is it vital to claim it for yourself? 2. Why would your organization find value in incorporating courageous leadership skills? 3. What action would you do right now if you had unlimited courage? As a global speaker I am on a mission to resurrect the power of everyday courage and courageous leadership by simply embracing the original definition, meaning "heart and spirit." Book me to speak at your next conference such as "Real Leadership Is Courageous: How to Discover YOUR Courage!" (I customize all presentations to fit the theme and demographics.) One client said, “I can always tell when a speaker has been successful at our conferences because I hear the group repeating concepts, anecdotes, examples, etc. that they heard during the presentation. This was certainly true with Sandra’s talk.” With over 22 years of original courage research, I prove that there is a direct correlation between your success quotient and your courage quotient. Sandra’s the internationally published author of three books: "COURAGE: The Heart and Spirit of Every Woman," "The COURAGE Difference at Work: A Unique Success Guide for Women" and "FACE IT! 12 Courageous Actions that Bring Success at Work and Beyond." She has also been published in numerous magazines including Chief Learning Officer, Strategic Finance, Zig Ziglar and HR Matters, Malaysia. All of her books are available on her website or internationally on Kindle. Sandra is qualified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator® and she is a certified Enneagram teacher. She enjoys golf, skiing, yoga, travel, cooking, meditation, reading, and being an 11th Hour hospice volunteer.
