Introductory Welcome Pre-training Session: 6-7PM TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 16 

This workshop will be hosted online as part of our virtual event series.

Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program for corporations and leaders created by Dr. Brené Brown, TED speaker, five-time New York Times best-selling author, and research professor at the University of Houston.  Brené has spent decades researching leadership and organizational cultures. When she asked: “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 faced with seemingly intractable challenges and an insatiable demand for innovation?” the response was resounding: “We need braver leaders and more courageous cultures.” 

Dare to Lead™ makes this imperative accessible and achievable. It helps enable brave leadership by building practical skills in areas where most leaders and employees struggle. Things like:

  • Having tough conversations, holding themselves and others accountable 

  • Giving and receiving tough, yet constructive feedback 

  • Leading with empathy and connection 

  • Taking smart risks that lead to more innovation 

  • Building trust and individual self-awareness

  • Building resilience after failure, disappointments, and setbacks 

The Dare to Lead™ curriculum trains leaders to build four proven skills of courage in observable, highly practical ways. The skills are: 

  1. Embracing Vulnerability: “Psychological safety,” defined as “team members feel safe to take risks and be vulnerable with one another,” was identified as the #1 factor in top-performing teams at Google. Mastery of this foundational skill helps leaders face risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure with courage and clarity. Success is defined as having the courage to show up, fully engage, and be seen when you can’t control the outcome.

  2. Living our Values: Identifying, operationalizing, and practicing our most important beliefs so they become everyday tools and particularly under stress, when we tend to fall out of alignment.

  3. Braving Trust: Creating/deepening connections in relationships and teams based on 7 distinct elements. Trust is the glue that holds teams and organizations together.

  4. Learning to Rise: Mastering resilience to learn and grow from the failures, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives. 

Dare to Lead™ is the only program we know of that teaches people how to build the relevant skills: how to be vulnerable, take risks, and be braver in ways that generate multi-level results. The greatest barrier to daring leadership is not fear; the greatest obstacle is armor—how we self-protect and avoid vulnerability when we feel uncertain.
