“To be the person who we long to be—we must be vulnerable. We must take off the armor, put down the weapons, show up, and let ourselves be seen.” – Dr. Brené Brown
As a certified Dare to Lead™ facilitator, let Kimberly help you, your team, and/or your organization access greater potential by writing a courageous new story. Kimberly follows the research provided by Dr. Brené Brown.
Having spent over two decades dedicated to studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership, Brown's research reveals that the ideal leader is someone who cultivates a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whose hearts are the expectation.
This two-day workshop, Dare to Lead™, is your invitation to become a braver leader as you learn the four empirically-proven skills sets of courageous leadership that are teachable, measurable, and observable:
- Rumbling with Vulnerability: Facing risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure with courage and clarity.
- Living into our Values: Identifying, operationalizing, and practicing the beliefs that we hold most important.
- Braving Trust: Creating or deepening connections in relationships and teams based on the seven elements of trust.
- Learning to Rise: Learning and growing from the failures, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives.
It’s time to be a more courageous leader. Accept this invitation to get in the arena and dare greatly. Your work will be life-giving. Your leadership will be life-giving. Your legacy will be life-giving.
