Podcast: “Almost Everybody is Wrestling with Something.”
What is courage? In this episode, Liz Gold talks with Milo Razza, friend and leadership coach, all about what courage means (there's no easy answer), how running a business can be bootcamp for whatever your issues are and why there's courage in just admitting how much you want something.
"What takes courage really varies."
"We can gain strength and gain courage and have resilience supported by other people around us."
"I felt like I had to be different than I am in order to be successful."
"I'm very forthright; What you see is what you get with me pretty much. I wanted a brand that really reflected that."
"The growth for all of us lies in being just even braver than we were yesterday."
"There's this way that expertise gets so celebrated and one of the problems experts run into is often they become siloed."
"One of the advantages of being a generalist, a lateral thinker, or having a broad knowledge base is that a lot of times we can see the broader picture of impact and the connections that a subject matter expert can't see outside of that silo."
"There's a courage even just admitting how much you want something and then to actually swing out and go for it can be all the scarier, too."
"Conformity is one of the forces in our society. That's why we need so much courage."
"Almost everybody is wrestling with something."
