What is Dare to Lead™?

Dare to LeadTM is a unique and powerful leadership development program that is transforming people, teams and organisations. “When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others.“ – Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to LeadTM

Based on the research of Dr Brené Brown, Dare to LeadTM is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be run by certified facilitators exclusively. Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené BrownEndowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. She is also the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers including Dare to Lead, which is the culmination of a seven-year study on courage and leadership. This masterclass is designed as a shortcut to Brené’s extended Dare to LeadTM curriculum and will explore all of its key concepts in half the time to optimise your professional development.

Will you Dare to Lead?

Leaders come from all walks of life, but you all share the same challenge. To be effective, you need to effectively lead people. And to effectively lead people, you need to truly connect with them. To do this, you don’t need to be likeable, charming or manipulative. You need to be courageous. Dr Brene Brown has devoted her life to researching courageous people and courageous leadership. Her most significant and actionable findings are that courageous leaders all employ four skill sets, and that these are teachable, measurable, and observable. This exclusive masterclass has been developed by Certified Dare to LeadTM facilitator Michelle Holland in partnership with The Hatchery to examine and teach each of the four key skills of vulnerability, living our values, braving trust and learning to rise. Course participants will be able to apply them immediately and with powerful effect. There are no right answers anymore. Instead, we need leaders to embrace the discomfort of vulnerability, show up as their true authentic selves, and create the space for others to do the same.

Become the leader your people need you to be. Do not miss this opportunity to interact with the concepts and tools of Dr Brene Brown and gain personalised feedback and action plans from one of her certified facilitators.
