"Highly recommend."


"An amazing experience."

"One 'aha moment' after the other."

Who we are is how we lead.

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building programme designed to improve leader agility, team effectiveness, and a thriving culture.

Brené has spent two decades studying shame and more than seven years specifically looking at leadership. During her research, she interviewed leaders from all over the world—from Fortune 100 companies, non-profits, public sector entities, and more—and asked one question: what is the future of leadership?

Remarkably, their answers pointed to one thing: we need braver leaders.

We need more courage.

This curriculum is essential for teams who want to:

  • be better equipped to deal with difficult conversations;
  • reduce unhealthy and unproductive behaviour;
  • be more creative and innovative;
  • build resilience and improve alignment; and
  • foster a culture of accountability and trust.

This experience is for you if:

  • you're in a position of leadership within your organisation;
  • you see the potential in people and processes, and are willing to take responsibility for achieving that potential;
  • you’re passionate about accelerating performance in yourself and others; and
  • you have to navigate organisational change as part of your role.

The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research, and the foundation of Dare to Lead™, is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable.

Build a braver culture and drive performance by:

  • understanding how to effectively navigate vulnerability to unlock courage;
  • turning values from fluffy language into tangible, practical behaviours;
  • building a common culture of trust across your team; and
  • cultivating the skills to rise from setbacks and be more resilient.

Most importantly, you’ll be able to put the material into action at the programme by practicing the principles with your cohort, so that you leave prepared to implement the learning in your organisation.

If you’re ready to answer the call to courage, this profound work is for you.

This programme includes:

  • Dare to Lead™ programme and materials
  • Lunch, morning and afternoon teas on each day of your programme
  • The opportunity to become Dare to Lead™ Participant Certified*
  • Slack Community: You’ll be granted access to the Boma NZ Alumni Slack Workspace before your programme begins, so you can put faces to names in your private cohort, and also discuss things with previous Dare to Lead™ participants.

*Individuals who successfully complete the full Dare to Lead™ programme are eligible to add the Certified Dare to Lead™ Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.

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, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly list.
