As leaders we have a particular responsibility to not settle for the reassurance of hope, and the private satisfaction of raising our awareness. Now is the time for courageous action to challenge systemic racism and advocate for racial justice.
If acknowledging our own privilege is an act of warriorship, even more courageous is to acknowledge that with privilege comes bias.
Co-creation is a vital aspect of Global Warriors’ programmes. Here, our Warrior team colleague, Duncan Muller reflects on his recent experience leading two new groups in the States.
We all know the feeling of regret that follows a step towards vulnerability. It’s your mind saying, “What did you just do? What were you thinking?!” Managing this moment can be the difference between being a leader who consistently crosses their personal edges, and one who plays it safe.
As human beings we are meant to feel fear. We’ve evolved to experience this emotion for a reason. At the most basic level, fear helps to keep us alive and has contributed to our species’ survival for the past 200,000 years.

The question is, how do you engage with the stories that your mind naturally, healthily throws at you as you stand at the Edge?
