Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program for leaders; a necessary tool for those committed to being champions for equity in their systems.

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:
  1. Rumbling with Vulnerability
  2. Living into Our Values
  3. BRAVING Trust
  4. Learning to Rise
The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
