Be a Team Leader
The Campaign for Courage suggests three ways for a member of Congress to be a team leader, by creating:
1) Problem-Solving Committees: Committees would be made up of "best and brightest" constituents, from all political viewpoints, to help craft solutions to policy challenges. With support from the Congressperson's staff, the committee would seek to develop consensus-based recommendations that could serve as the basis for legislation to be introduced by the member of Congress, or help guide his/her voting on legislation.
2) Integrity Council: The purpose of this council is to help the member of Congress adhere to the highest standards of ethics and integrity. Its members could include a diverse mix of faith leaders and highly respected constituents.
3) Youth Advisory Council: Some members of Congress, ranging from Congress's most conservative members to most liberal, have convened youth advisory councils. These members share the belief that our democracy thrives by engaging members of the next generation.
