Ravenyard Priorities Assessment - Boldness


BOLDNESS - lack of hesitation or fear in the face of risk or danger; the fact or quality of going beyond the limits of conventional thought or action; visionary or imaginative character (bravery, fearlessness, daring, audacity).

In crisis, it is easy to be afraid, to retreat from the world, or to feel paralyzed by feelings of worry, grief, and shame. Boldness is about looking in the face of fear and deciding to move forward with courage and inventiveness.

Boldness can sometimes be mistaken for brashness, flamboyance, risk taking, recklessness, or carelessness. But bold people are actually prudent – they interrogate their fear and decide to move forward and emerge from hiding. They show determination and perseverance in the face of difficulty.


Bold leaders are inventive but remain grounded in reality. Despite the fears that accompany all crisis, they embody courage, steadiness, and the willingness to do what is necessary.
