The Courage Way (Audio)
The Courage Way

Leadership demands courage. You have to make good decisions while balancing inevitable tensions and knowing when to take risks. You need to keep your values in sight regardless of the pressures around you. At its core, leadership is a daily, ongoing practice, a journey toward becoming your best self and inviting others to do the same.

And that's where
The Courage Way comes in. It's a guide to leadership that shows how to access and draw upon courage in all that you do. It has its roots in the work of Parker J. Palmer, who in fifty years of teaching, speaking, and writing has explored the human spirit—what he has called “the inner landscape”—and its role in life and leadership.

Shelly Francis identifies key ingredients needed to cultivate courage, the most fundamental being trust—in ourselves and in each other. She describes how to build trust through the Center for Courage & Renewal's Circle of Trust approach, centered around eleven “touchstones,” poetic and practical operating guidelines for holding the meaningful conversations vital to trust building. Each chapter features true stories of how leaders have overcome challenges and strengthened their organizations through touchstones such as “Extend invitation, not demand”; “No fixing, saving, advising, or correcting”; and “When the going gets rough, turn to wonder.”

This graceful and inspiring book is a guide to courageous leadership and a journey of self-discovery. As Francis writes, “Courage is not only
in you—it is you. In your moments of courage, that's when you meet your true self.”

Narrated by Natalie Hoyt
Raised in a sound booth, Natalie Hoyt is an actual young adult who specializes in YA narration. No need to ask your voice to adopt a more youthful persona when you’ve got someone who dressed up as Hermione for those midnight Harry Potter book releases. Natalie’s first audiobook narration gigs came while she was working her way through college as a nanny. She would often show up for work costumed and in character, sporting an accent and a stack of books with which to entertain her young charges. Her PFH rate improved dramatically after she got her degree in the fine and performing arts and booked her first narration assignment for Audible.
