Based on Brené Brown's #1 New York Times Best Seller!


Dare to Lead™ is a courage-building programme for leaders, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.

Brené Brown describes a leader as “anyone who is responsible for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential.”

How would you feel if you could further your own growth and facilitate the evolution of those with whom you live and work?

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. How might these skills impact you?

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability: facing your current reality with courage.
  • Living Into Your Values: identifying and operationalising your values so the walk is being talked.
  • BRAVING Trust: creating or strengthening relationships using the seven elements of trust.
  • Learning to Rise: evolving and rising from life’s inevitable failures and challenges.
