The Gift of Courage
The Gift of Courage

Starting next week, we continue our journey through the Tilt 365 Model as we move to the Courage quadrant. We just finished Weekly Challenges related to the character traits that are a part of the three Humanity quadrant character strengths: Likability, Empathy and Trust; before that, we covered the character traits that are a part of the Wisdom quadrant character strengths: Perspective, Focus and Diligence.

As a reminder, the Tilt 365 Model is a holistic model based on character strengths, and we should develop a balance in all of these traits so that we can “tilt” to whatever is needed in the given context. We all have natural strengths and inclinations (and therefore, natural areas we should develop intentionally). The Weekly Challenges are designed to help individuals build a balance in each character trait in the model.

Balance continues with practices of the gut.

While the Wisdom quadrant attends to the leadership of thoughts and the mind and the Humanity quadrant attends to the leadership of people by focusing on collaborative service, the Courage quadrant attends to leadership of action and results. The three character strengths we develop in this section are ConfidenceBoldness and Integrity. When we work on the Courage character strengths, we are becoming aware of a part of our ego that is motivated by power and autonomy. Our interest and attention is focused on being assertive, facing risk and ensuring justice.

Next week we’ll get started with one of the character traits in Confidence: Self-Assured.

We’re looking forward to continuing on the Weekly Challenge journey with you. In the meantime, Happy Tilting!
