Building the Courage to Speak Up and Stand Out at Work

Courage is a skill you build—not a trait you’re born with. But it can be tough to drum up in the moment.

So, what are the keys to mustering courage when it matters and getting positive results? In this audio-only course, Jim Detert—an award-winning professor at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business—shares what he’s learned about competent courage from over two decades of research. Jim is the author of Choosing Courage: The Everyday Guide to Being Brave at Work.

Learn about four types of fear that keep you from speaking out. Find out how to pick your battles to deliver greater impact. Explore ways to use inquiry and avoid absolutes in order to advocate effectively. Determine how to prepare in advance to pre-empt fear. Start building your courage ladder today–one, small courageous step at a time!
