Women Courageous is about leaders fearlessly inhabiting their full power and changing the world.

-- Sally Helgesen, Author, How Women Rise, The Female Advantage, The Web of Inclusion

Courageous leadership and heroism often come with an unconscious bias as 'masculine' traits. Women Courageous: Leading Through the Labyrinth is a major contribution toward the recognition of the extraordinary courage, leadership, and heroism of women every day. Many of the chapter authors did not realize their roles as courageous leaders, but this very fact speaks to their often-overlooked contributions, and helps other women recognize the depth of their own courage.

The authors challenge the reader to deepen and expand the definition of courage as they present compelling stories of crisis and opportunity across personal, interpersonal, social group, and organizational contexts. Women Courageous is emergent reading for women and men.

Women Courageous invites practitioners and scholars to into their stories of courage, vulnerability, and in some cases triumph.

In a world where so much of leadership seems driven by the cowardice of excessive self-interest, Women Courageous: Leading through the Labyrinth proves that courage is the element that can change the world.
