I’m excited to read this new book by my favorite educator Parker Palmer. It’s called The Courage Way: Leading and Living with Integrity.
In the sample I began to read, I found myself so intrigued by the idea of “creative courage” and what it would look like to measure my year by how much creative courage I had.
What is creative courage? Palmer discusses that creative courage is the courage to generate new ideas, new symbols, and new structures for positive change in the world. Creativity takes courage; you put yourself out there and choose to believe your voice–in whatever form–is worthwhile and important.
