Course Length

Rising Strong and Daring Greatly at Work

Daring leaders are self-aware, know how to have hard conversations, hold themselves and others accountable, lead with empathy and connection, take smart risks that lead to innovation, reset quickly after disappointments and setbacks, and, give and receive feedback - especially when it's tough.

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program...what Brené refers to as a “skill-based playbook for leaders.” The most significant finding from her latest research is that courage is not an inherent quality (you either have it or you don’t) but rather it is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. These skill sets are:

  • 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 hold 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.

Through engaging group work, small group sharing, individual reflections, and facilitated discussion (all introduced by video teachings from Brené), you'll get this 'courage work' in your bones. Not only will it change how you work and lead, you'll become a better spouse, parent, and friend... you'll be more courageous in all areas of your life.

Who is this for? Anyone wanting to bring more courage to the classroom, boardroom, or living room. It is applicable for informal and formal leaders at all levels: frontline leaders, mid-level managers, and executives. Educators, technologists, students, clergy, manufacturers, military veterans, first responders, human resource professionals, healthcare professionals, engineers, non-profit personnel, business owners, and entrepreneurs have all benefited from this course and you can too.

Brené who? Or total Brené fan? This workshop is designed for both and everyone in between.

This all sounds great, but isn't it a little soft?

Minouche Shafik, Director, London School of Economics, says that

"In the past, jobs were about muscles, now they are about brains, but in the future, they will be about the heart." Brawn and brains have lead us through the industrial and technical revolutions, but the next revolution will require leaders that are human-focused – leveraging diverse strengths, creating loyalty, and solving complex problems. Process optimization and technology can only take us so far – the next revolution is to begin to use our humanity to our advantage.

"Leaders must invest a reasonable amount of time attending to fears and feelings or squander an unreasonable amount of time trying to manage ineffective and unproductive behavior." - Brené Brown

The Dare to Lead™ curriculum lies within leadership competency content and many times it will count towards CEUs. Individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour Dare to Lead program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put a Dare to Lead™ Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.
