It takes courage. To live. To live the life you've always imagined. To make a change, tell your truth, take a stand, picture new possibilities for your life. It takes courage to follow your heart and live authentically.

"We've seen women relating, sharing, collaborating, seeking solutions, giving, envisioning, lifting up, intuiting, encouraging, looking out, looking inward, and listening deeply. We've known in our hearts that the feminine face of courage, while different from the prevailing, more masculine one, is amazing and valuable."

--The Courage Code

Every day you act courageously, in large and small ways.

Every day you need to find more courage...for taking care of your family, or for being effective at work, or in just going through your day.

It's not always easy remembering how courageous we are. And it's certainly not always easy finding our courage for living our lives the way we want and need to.

Courage Project's Vision

My vision is the place to come to for resources and services that support you in finding your courage in life and work. .

I have a big vision... changing how the world values the courage it takes to live authentically and lead collaboratively

I want everyone - women and men - around the world to appreciate the kind of courage that comes from the heart and spirit. Because it's the kind of courage that builds bridges between people. It's the type of courage that taps into the humanness and wisdom of all of us. It's the kind of courage that supports us in building relationships and work cultures that bring out the best in everyone - the best ideas, creativity, and compassion.
