About The Dare To Lead Program

Bren Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers, and culture shifters, the new Dare to Lead curriculum will show us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead.

Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. Its about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage. The world is desperate for braver leaders. Its time for all of us to step up.

This is a curriculum for developing brave leaders and courageous cultures. Its learning and practice that requires brave work, tough conversations, and truly showing up. Daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100% teachable.

The curriculum addresses key challenges our research suggests that companies are grappling with:

  1. We avoid tough conversations, including giving honest, productive feedback.

  2. Rather than spending a reasonable amount of time proactively acknowledging and addressing the fears and feelings that show up during change and upheaval, we spend an unreasonable amount of time managing problematic behaviours.

  3. Diminishing trust caused by a lack of connection and empathy.

  4. Not enough people are taking smart risks or creating and sharing bold ideasto meet changing demands and the insatiable need for innovation.

  5. We get stuck and defined by setbacks, disappointments, and failures, so instead of spending resources on clean-up to ensure that consumers, stakeholders, or internal processes are made whole, we are spending too much time and energy reassuring team members who are questioning their contribution and value.

  6. Too much shame and blame, not enough accountability and learning.

  7. People are opting out of vital conversations about diversity and inclusivity because they fear looking wrong, saying something wrong, or being wrong. Choosing our own comfort over hard conversations is the epitome of privilege, and it corrodes trust and moves us away from meaningful and lasting change.

  8. When something goes wrong, individuals and teams are rushing into ineffective or unsustainable solutions rather than staying with problem identification and solving. When we fix the wrong thing for the wrong reason, the same problems continue to surface. Its costly and demoralizing.

  9. Organisational values are gauzy and assessed in terms of aspirations rather than actual behaviours that can be taught, measured, and evaluated.

  10. Perfectionism and fear are keeping people from learning and growing.

The common thread? How we deal with fear. We will teach the skills required to tackle these issues by becoming braver leaders.

Part 1 Rumbling With Vulnerability - How we react to fear and choosing to lean in to risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure.

Part 2 Living into Our Values - Clarity on our values and the gap between our desired values and our behaviour.

Part 3 Braving Trust - How trust is built and destroyed in organisations.

Part 4 Learning to Rise Resilience; failing forward (learning whilst failing) .

Dare to Lead is for you if you are a leader who wants to become braver in your leadership.

About Dare to Lead and Bren Brown:

Dare to Lead is a two day skills based curriculum based on research to support brave leaders in your organisation who want to build courageous cultures.

Based on the research of Dr. Bren Brown, Dare to Lead is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.

Bren is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation Bren Brown Endowed Chair atThe 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 #1New York Timesbestsellers:The Gifts of Imperfection,Daring Greatly,Rising Strong,Braving the Wilderness, andDare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 onThe Wall Street JournalandPublishers Weeklylist.

The most significant finding from Brens latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. Certified Dare to Lead Facilitators focus on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Certified facilitators are authorized to issue Dare to Lead Trained certificates to individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour training. In addition to receiving a certificate of completion, these individuals are allowed to put a Dare to Lead Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.
