Bill Treasurer gives any aspiring leader a practical guide on how to develop the courage that is needed to make an organization a winner. He teaches us that those “sweaty palms” moments are, in fact, required to get outside of one’s “comfort zone” and doing that is necessary for personal growth. Courage Goes to Work gives us the conviction that ordinary individuals can achieve extraordinary results.
