Courage, Authenticity and Identity

The Story of This Is ...

Many years ago, a young aspiring student had to take part in a competitive three and a half hour examination to get into the prestigious university of his choice. He entered the examination room, turned over his paper, and read. There was one question and one question only, on the exam paper.

 

'What is Courage?' was the question in front of him.

The student thought for a few minutes before writing : 'This is'.

 

He handed his paper in and walked out of the exam room three hours early. He got an offer.

 

We named our company This Is ... to reflect the importance of these values of courage and integrity - and the need for actions to be consistent with beliefs - in times of turbulence, uncertainty and change. The company name also emphasises the importance of knowing your identity and what you stand for in times of change and transition

 

Do you have the courage to work strategically on organisation, leadership and people issues? If so...

 

This Is ... can help by bringing insights and learning from our experience and from the substantial knowledge that already exists in the literature on organisation and leadership development, executive coaching, people management and business psychology. Contact us to learn more
