Lead with Courage

To make an impact in the world you need to be courageous. Sonia McDonald's new book 'First Comes Courage' delves into the world of leadership courage; how to nurture and grow your courage to be your greatest tool yet. By mastering the art of kindness, impact, purpose and resilience you can be the courageous leader you dream to be.


"In reading First Comes Courage I found myself asking am I the kind and the courageous leader I believe I am, have I filled others with the belief and the want of their own morrow; have I opened enough doors and closed the doors that no longer serve? And then I am reminded every so softly I need first to be courageous and kind to and for myself. First comes Courage (in my humble) opinion will be the go-to book for many of us as we step forward into our own lives and into the lives we shape and lead."
