The Highest Expression of Courage

Generating gutsy courage by aligning head, heart and gut brains.

By Grant Soosalu



“As described in previous articles, recent Neuroscience findings have uncovered that we have complex, adaptive and functional neural networks – or ‘brains’- in our heart and gut.

Called the cardiac and enteric nervous systems respectively, these adaptive neural networks display amazing levels of memory and intuitive ‘intelligence’ and there’s a growing array of evidence that these brains are deeply involved in the control and processing of numerous functions and core behavioural competencies.

By combining these Neuroscience findings with behavioural modelling research, a number of key insights have emerged that have profound implications for training, coaching and adaptive leadership.”

Courage is key to action, movement and authentic expression. It’s a core competency for life success. As the title and theme of this month’s Worldwide Coaching Magazine indicates, “No guts, No glory!”
