The world is desperate for brave leaders—leaders who are not silent about hard things, who ask the right questions, and who are self-aware enough to lead from their hearts and not from fear. Based on the research of Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program in which participants learn the skills and tools necessary to become more-daring leaders in their work and lives.

The most significant finding from Brown’s recent research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable and observable. During Dare to Lead sessions, participants engage in learning, reflection, conversation and practice of these skills in order to better support the cultivation of their own brave leadership and courageous culture. The common experience builds trust; strengthens relationships and connections; and provides a shared language, understanding and support for the usage of the courage-building skills.

As a result of engaging in this work, participants will be equipped with the skills and tools necessary to become daring leaders—leaders who lean into vulnerability, take smart risks, use their values to guide their behaviors and purposefully build trust in their relationships, creating a culture where brave conversations are the norm and armor is not needed or rewarded.


- Learn that daring leadership requires four sets of skills: rumbling with vulnerability, living into our values, braving trust and learning to rise.

- Understand why vulnerability (risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure) is the foundational skill set of courage.

- Recognize that vulnerability is the birthplace of many of the behaviors that define daring leadership, including creativity, accountability and difficult conversations.

- Understand the critical role that self-awareness plays in daring leadership.

- Determine your call to courage.

-Recognize that daring leadership requires showing up for hard conversations, including giving and receiving feedback.
