Courage to Lead

To lead is daring. To inspire others is to be grounded in confidence not only in yourself but in your vision and decisions.

The role of a leader is not an easy one, however, it can be an extremely, rewarding, meaningful, and impactful experience.

Today leaders are looking for an authentic and meaningful way to lead, inspire, and connect. The Dare to Lead™ Workshop not only shows leaders how to do that but gives them the confidence that they can.

The workshop is based on the brilliant work and research of Brené Brown is a must for any leader and organization looking to transform how they work, lead and connect in the workplace.


This workshop is based on

Based on the progressive research of Dr. Brené Brown, the Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage building program designed to help and inspire leaders to take their leadership skills to the next level.


The research found that courage is the most sought after character trait within a leader and comprised of 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 armoured leadership to courageous leadership.
