Dare to Lead™

“Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. Truth and courage aren’t always comfortable, but they’re never weakness.”

— Brené Brown

Daring leaders are self-aware, know how to have hard conversations, hold themselves and others accountable, build trust, lead with empathy and connection, take smart risks that lead to innovation, reset quickly after disappointments and setbacks, and give and receive feedback — especially when it’s tough.

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program helping individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

“The Dare to Lead workshop highlights the essential skills of a leader in a very digestible and authentic way. The program requires you to look at yourself and seek to understand what genuinely motivates, scares and thrills you.  The structure and delivery of the workshop encourages participants to honestly and fully engage with the materials.  It creates an environment that lends itself beautifully to community building. I feel even more appreciative and trusting of my colleagues than ever.”
