Together we are turning up the courage

Creating trust through courageous leadership, ongoing social innovation and deep community building.

As individuals, networks, sponteneous groupings and communities.

We know it is up to us. We are ready. We are you.

Courage is not the absence of fear. It is just taking the next step.
Welcome to Turn Up the Courage

July 2009 update: As part of Sofia's web restructure, this site is now static and serves as a record to express what Turn Up the Courage stands for. For a live account of what Sofia Bustamante is doing, please visit her new blog.

There you will find news of Sofia's new social venture "London Creative Labs", her virtual venture "Radical Inclusion" and her current stream of articles and activities. Please note, the work of Turn Up the Courage continues and this site will gradually be updated but for the time being serves to express the principles, values and methodology of Turn Up the Courage.

Do you dare to believe that you or your team can reach peak performance and sustain it? Imagine what a lasting difference you can make!

Turn Up the Courage believes that all individuals and groups can show genius, and can step up to making a huge difference in their world by doing so. Turn Up the Courage believes this is the natural way of being, and invites you to do so!

There are four principles if you want to Turn Up the Courage:

Tap effortlessly into your personal or collective genius to reach a type of peak performance that is known as flow. Click here for more about flow

Sharpen your awareness of the bigger context (the world in which you operate). Understand the emerging paradigms from science and the humanities and learn what it takes to operate with lasting impact in this fast changing world.

Identify your optimal role: where your passion, purpose and ability intersect with a clear need in the world.

Collaborate across all kinds of divides, resolve conflicts and build winning relationships to play a bigger game in our increasingly connected world.

Turn Up the Courage offers guidance, support and thought leadership to help individuals and groups to put the four principles into action.
