Daring leadership starts with courage
Imagine leading in a workplace where everyone feels safe, respected, trusted and feels free to do their best work. What goals could be accomplished? What innovation could occur? And how much more fulfilling would it be? The key to becoming an authentic leader is to connect to your own courage first.
About Dare to Lead™
Dr. Brené Brown has spent more than twenty years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and she recently completed a seven-year study on brave leadership. Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage. In her latest book, Dare to Lead™, Brené interviewed over 150 global c-suite executives based on one question: what, if anything, about the way people are leading today needs to change in order for leaders to be successful in a complex, rapidly changing environment where we’re face with seemingly intractable challenges and an insatiable demand for innovation. The answer… we need braver leaders and more courageous cultures.
Dare to Lead™ is the ultimate playbook for developing brave leaders and courageous cultures. It’s learning and practice that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with our whole hearts. The Dare to Lead™ program is an empirically based, courage-building program based on four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. This program gives language, tools, and exercises to put the four courage skill sets into immediate practice.
Rumbling with Vulnerability: face risk, uncertainty, and tough conversations with courage, clarity, and empathy.
Living into our Values: identify what you stand for and how to show up from a place of integrity every day.
BRAVING Trust: build meaningful and authentic connections with your teams and colleagues so you can work together from a foundation of trust.
Learning to Rise: become aware of your emotions and stories and learn how to lead with courage… even when faced with failure, disappointment, and setbacks.
