Dare to Lead

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is a courage- building program designed to engage leaders and teams in real conversations about being brave and building courageous cultures. The program teaches the foundational skills that enable leaders to do the hard things that they must do but often avoid — initiate difficult conversations, make the best decision even when it’s unpopular, and choose what is right over what is fast or easy.

The most significant finding from Dr. Brown’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, observable, and measurable:

  • Rumbling With Vulnerability

    Facing risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure with courage and clarity.
  • Living Into Our Values

    Identifying, operationalizing, and practicing the beliefs that we find most important.
  • BRAVING Trust

    Creating or deepening connections in relationships and teams based on the seven elements of trust.
  • Learning To Rise

    Learning and growing from the failures, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives.
