Innovative new book from career experts, speakers and thinkers

BROADVIEW HEIGHTS, Ohio, Sept. 23, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Career coach Kris McGuigan knows life is full of disruptions: suffer loss, face uncertainty, or embark on a new initiative. When change sets in, fear threatens to paralyze decision-making. “It doesn’t have to be like that. You can take control of your destiny and achieve long-lasting results even in the worst of situations. But you have to learn to activate real, sustained courage,” she says. After successfully helping clients face their fears for over two decades, she decided to write her new book. The necessary courage: How to make courageous decisions in business & life, which will be released on October 18, 2022.

Kris McGuigan decided to share her knowledge because too many people don’t know how to deal with change. “I want people to know what to do so they can avoid confusion, lost time, controversy and even heartbreaking breakdowns. But my coaching time is limited. The courage required allows me to influence as many people as possible by sharing the precise steps to overcome self-doubt and make bold decisions.

McGuigan has a unique gift for helping people reduce their anxiety for better outcomes. Through her business, Professional Courage, her services are sought out by corporations and leaders who desperately need her help to retain high performers, advance careers and better articulate values. “Every day I meet people looking for a tactical approach to managing change,” she affirms.

McGuigan uses real-life stories and a science-based approach to show how to respond in times of intense change. Endangered retellings include tragedy, divorce, job loss, start-up and reinvention. “What you do in life-changing situations has a tremendous impact on your business and relationships. I’ve held nothing back in The Requisite Courage. I share my best practices for unlocking your true potential and living the life of your dreams.”

A real-life story from McGuigan’s own experience serves as a perfect example of overcoming fear to make bold decisions. After seeing an impressive presenter at a conference years ago, Kris jumped at the opportunity to speak to him. This presenter turned out to be Shola Richards, now a two-time bestselling author (get work going and Go together) and popular speaker. This conversation led to a friendship and mentorship that has proved valuable to both Richards and McGuigan. In fact, Richards wrote the foreword for The necessary courage. “When my dear friend Kris McGuigan told me she was using her considerable talent to write a book…I was beyond fascinated – I had to read it.”

McGuigan will be introducing her book during an interactive event on October 1st. It can be purchased from either Barnes & Noble or Amazon.
