Boldness and bravery are qualities that are required in leaders whose desire is to innovate and impact the lives of others positively. This is because such leaders constantly find themselves operating outside of their comfort zones… in taking bold steps when they would rather stay put, in reaching out when they would rather be reached out to, in speaking up for others who need their help, and stepping in whenever their input, help and support are needed. Generally, such individuals dedicate themselves to a greater good. 

Bold and brave leaders are found in families, among friends, in companies and community groups.
