Could just be a phrasing issue, but as a supervisor I think your role would be less of helping people be more courageous, and more of defining a culture that requires less courage.

Ann Zerkle

David - That's a great distinction. I like the idea of helping to build a culture that requires less courage.

Andy Parker

I agree with the distinction but would caution that it may too idealistic to suppose we can achieve a culture where no courage is required. Neither of you mentioned this ideal courage-free culture so I'm responding to an extrapolation of my own making.

Ann - I'd encourage you to read the chapter in "Outliers" by Gladwell about airline crashes with this idea of courage in mind. I think you'd enjoy it.
