Dare to Lead Book Cover

Registration is open for our 2021 course!

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed for professionals. Dr. Brown has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. 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 throughout the 25-hour course:

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability - Leaning into - and staying with - tough interactions that involve risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure.
  • Living Into Our Values - Walking our talk about what we believe and hold important, making sure our thoughts, intentions, words and actions line up with those beliefs and values.
  • Braving Trust - Learning the key aspects of trust and putting them to work as the glue that holds our teams and organizations together.
  • Learning To Rise - Developing the skills to get back up after a fall or a setback so we're willing to risk falling again.
