Course Overview

Based on the research of Brené Brown

Daring leadership requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. It requires that we stay curious, lean into difficult conversations, and be vulnerable instead of armoring up.

The Dare to Lead™ program dives into the future of leadership, ethical decision making and organizational success through the lens of bravery and courage by tackling the four skill sets of brave leadership: Rumbling with Vulnerability, Living into Our Values, BRAVING Trust and Learning to Rise.
