The Courage Sessions & Stories

Stories of Courage

Strength doesn’t come from what you can do. It comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn’t. 

The Courage Sessions

Conversations about courage, what it means to people and how they use it in their personal and professional lives.

Speaking Your Truth with Matthew Gould

In this inspiring and insightful Courage Sessions chat, Professional Leadership & Executive Coach, founder of More Co Ltd and co-founder of HTI Institute, Matthew Gould shares that courage means speaking your truth. It’s about figuring out what you stand for as an individual and having the courage to communicate that transparently.

And as a coach, we have a shared responsibility to get the client’s outcome. And so we’re hired to speak into our clients truth, share what we see and have the courage to say uncomfortable things and lend a perspective in service of our clients. Courage is saying, ‘hey, with the objective you defined earlier, you’re going the wrong way. Let’s either change the objective or change direction to that objective’.

Conflict & Relationships with Viola Neufeld

As a coach, educator, therapist and facilitator of Transpectives Consulting Inc., and author of Grateful for the FightViola Neufeld champions the use of conflict for personal change, fulfilled relationships and dynamic organization. In this candid and rich conversation, Vi says that courage is about taking action and moving forward. And depending on how we exercise courage, we either gain confidence or lose confidence.

In relationship counselling, she shares that it takes a huge amount of courage for someone just to make that first phone call, walk in the door and be willing to face themselves and see their own part in the problem. And courage plays a major role in increasing our tolerance for discomfort and trusting the process.

Finding Your Purpose with Alejandra Endara

In this Courage Sessions Interview, Digital Strategist Alejandra Endara, shares her thoughts on courage and the role it played in pursuing her dream to move to Spain, complete her Masters Degree and get clarity on the purposeful work as a social entrepreneur that she now wants to do and make a huge impact in. 

For Alejandra, courage is the self-awareness and act of daring to be yourself in order to dig deep and push past your fears to design a life that’s aligned with your values. She shares that one way she uses it is to allow herself to ‘be me’, my most authentic self.
