Uncertain times call for daring leaders. Who you are is how you lead and right now, we need leaders who are courageous. About Dare to Lead™

Based on the latest research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is a workshop designed to teach (and practice) the four courage-based skill sets that will help you drop the armor and become a more daring leader. 

For an amazing summary of what we'll cover, uncover, and dig into in this course, listen to Brené's first episode of her Dare to Lead podcast.

"But if we want people to fully show up, to bring their whole selves, including their unarmored whole hearts to work so that we can innovate and solve problems and serve people, we have to be vigilant about creating this culture. We have to be the leaders that we want people to be."

This course, lead by Lisa Brouwer, a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, includes group discussion, self-reflection, experiential learning, and short videos hosted by Brené on the four skill sets of courage:

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability: Leaning into (and staying with) tough interactions that involve risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure while staying true to who we are.
  • Living into our Values: Walking our talk about what we hold as most important, making sure our thoughts, intentions, words, and actions align with our values.
  • BRAVING Trust: Learning and practicing the key aspects of trust and putting them to work as the glue that holds our teams and organizations together.
  • Learning to Rise: Developing the skills to get back up after a fall so we're willing to risk falling again. Re-writing the stories and endings that no longer serve us.

You will learn, practice, and hone these skills in an atmosphere with other leaders from various organizations across industries.

Your experiences (and theirs) will make this a unique learning environment where you'll leave with new language and rumble skills, operationalized values, and the confidence to apply Brené's tools and courage framework to how you live, lead, work, and even parent.

About Your Facilitator

Whenever Lisa Brouwer introduces Brené to audiences, she jokingly adds the #Girlcrush. Since reading Daring Greatly in 2013, Lisa has been immersed in Brené's work; everything from reading her books, learning from Brené online, and participating in face-to-face groups.

This life-changing work has helped her build shame resilience, lean into vulnerability, and drop the belief that her self-worth is found in her productivity.  Learning about empathy and self-compassion (and practicing what she learned) has changed how Lisa leads in her community, works with her clients, and even parents her teenagers.

Lisa was accepted into Brené's Dare to Lead™ program and joined the first cohort of certified facilitators in March 2019. She is living proof of what is possible when you say "Hell yes" to your call to courage.
