Let’s become brave leaders and create courageous cultures.
Our world needs it.
In March 2019, after a rigorous selection process, I became a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator.
We had the privilege of being trained by best-selling author and researcher and story teller, Dr. Brené Brown herself. Dr. Brown’s work adds a wonderful and needed perspective on leadership. She invites us all to be courageous and provides practical tools for developing the 4 skills that make up courage. This includes, vulnerability which is defined as “uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure.” Brené says that “vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy and creativity. Let’s develop brave leaders and courageous cultures together!
About The Dare To Lead™ Program
Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by qualified professionals.
Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead™, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly lists.
The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
Individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour Dare to Lead™ program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put a Dare to Lead™ Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.
