Dare to Lead™ Public Workshop in Austin, TX

Tuesday, October 29th – Wednesday, October 30th

The world is desperate for braver leaders. Dare to Lead™ is an empirically-based courage-building program designed by Dr. Brené Brown.

What is Dare to Lead™?

We believe the world is in desperate need of braver leaders. In the absence of courageous leadership, we are plagued with:

  • Inability to have Tough Conversations
  • Difficulties with Inclusivity, Diversity, and Equity
  • Lack of Innovation & Creativity
  • Cultures full of Shame & Blame
  • Poor Work/Life Balance
  • Stuck in Setbacks
  • Corroding Trust
  • Dismissal of Fears & Feelings
  • and much more…

This 2-day workshop is designed to teach the research-based skill sets of courage that will turn you into a braver, more daring leader.
