Event description


Give the gift of courage this holiday season with this special Dare To Lead™ offer—start your 2020 off with our 1/2-day Dare To Lead™ programme.

Register before 30 November to receive a gift-wrapped copy of Brené Brown's #1 New York Times best selling book, Dare To Lead, delivered in time for you (or your giftee) to read over the holiday break!

Who we are is how we lead

When the Dare to Lead™ research team asked senior executives around the world about the most important thing we can be cultivating, one answer stood above the rest: "We need braver leaders."

We need leaders who know how to have courageous conversations.

We need leaders who have a greater aspiration for how they want to be in the world.

We need leaders who are ready and willing to show up with their whole hearts.

Many of the executives they spoke to had also made the assumption that people either have these characteristics or they don't—but that's not true.

Through their research, the Dare to Lead™ team discovered a profound truth: courageous leadership consists of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable and observable.

The Dare to Lead™ programme is your chance to learn these skills and put them into practice.

How would your organisation change if you started having braver and fuller conversations with each other?
