The Courage Factor: Leading people-based culture change
by E. Scott Geller and Bob Veazie

The-Courage-FactorLeading-people-based-culture-change This book can help organizations cultivate a culture of people going beyond the call of duty for the health, safety, and welfare of themselves and others. We call such discretionary behavior “actively caring.” Most people care, but too few act on their caring. As you follow our narrative and develop profound understanding of the psychology of leadership and actively caring, you’ll discover personal power and potential.  This story defines actively caring as showing compassionate courage on behalf of the safety and/or welfare of others. Our story brings these concepts to life and illustrates practical ways to increase actively caring throughout a culture.
