We all lead someone. Ourselves. Our family. Our community. Our classrooms. Our teams. Our organizations. We lead. And how we lead matters.

In a time of constant change, uncertainty, polarization, and worry, how we lead changes everything. We can choose to lead with courage, or we can choose to lead for comfort. And the research is clear: We need more courageous leaders at work, in our communities, and in our homes. Leaders who bravely create spaces where people can put down their armor and create, innovate, problem-solve, and find authentic power with and through each other. Spaces where tough conversations are had and where people feel seen, heard, and valued. Spaces that re-humanize how we learn, work, engage with each other, and live.

Spaces that expand and multiply until we are no longer talking about a courageous leader or space but rather a courageous humanity and world.

Choosing courage is not easy. It is sometimes messy and always vulnerable. But be brave. Because courage isn’t something you’re either born with or without. It’s not some fuzzy, intangible ideal.

“Courage is a collection of four skill sets that can be taught, observed, and measured.” – Dare to Lead, Dr. Brené Brown

About The Dare To Lead Program

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.

Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of ImperfectionDaring GreatlyRising StrongBraving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly lists.

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.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 24-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.
