Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.
Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at
The 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 #1
New York Times bestsellers:
The Gifts of Imperfection,
Braving the Wilderness, and
Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on
The Wall Street Journal and
Publisher’s Weekly lists.
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. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on
developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
Taught by Faisal, one of less than 20 men globally, trained by Brené to facilitate this workshop, individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour Dare to Lead program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put
a Dare to Lead Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.
