Program Summary

Many of the great leaders of our time understand the key to not only effective leadership, but to living a life well lived. Winston Churchill. Maya Angelou. CS Lewis. Walt Disney. They all believe that the one virtue that upholds every other virtue is: COURAGE.

In this hands-on session, you’ll collaboratively explore the foundation of Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead work and practice the art of courageous leadership. Lisa Brouwer, a Certified Dare to Lead Facilitator, will invite you into an elevated conversation where you’ll:

  • Define (or refine) what real courage is and why it matters right now in leadership
  • Uncover the barriers of courage in your organization (we’ll do a deep dive on the number one barrier based upon Brené’s research)
  • Explore what’s possible in your organization when you lead from a place of courage
  • Understand and lean into Brené’s first courage building skill set: Rumbling with Vulnerability
  • Debunk the six myths of vulnerability and adopt a new mindset around vulnerability
  • Learn and practice ‘rumble skills’ and ‘rumble tools’ in order to live out courage while having hard conversations 

It just takes a small group of people leading, and living, from courage to change an organization, a home, or a community. Courageous leadership, if you have an official title of ‘leader’ or not, begins with you. 

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Understanding what armor is.
  2. Identifying how it shows up (individually and collectively). 
  3. What triggers us to armor up.
  4. Develop a practice to not armor up and make a productive, brave choice instead.
