Certified Dare to Lead™ Events

You were not meant to stay small.  You were called to be a leader, you were meant to make a difference.  Choosing to grow as a leader means choosing to practice courage over being comfortable. Learn what it means to be a courageous leader, and how to practice this in your work and life during a Certified Dare to Lead ™ Training.

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals. She 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 through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
