Leadership always requires courage. In fact, the word courage comes from the French word Coeur, meaning heart. A leader must have the heart to communicate his vision no matter how absurd it may sound to others, to risk defeat in the face of bitter odds, to put himself and his reputation on the line, and to reach out to others in order to take them on the journey. After all, a leader’s courage is ultimately not for himself, but for all the other people depending on him to lead.
