Living Into
Your Values

Get clear on what you believe and check that your intentions, words, thoughts and behaviors align with your beliefs. As a leader, you must realize when to act and know that sometimes you need to act in difficult situations. It takes courage to recognize these opportunities for leadership and to set an example for your team. Learn the steps to live into your values and make decisions, even hard ones, that honor those values.


Trust is built through small moments of vulnerability and comes from choosing courage over comfort. In business, trust increases speed and decreases costs. Master the essential elements behind being a trustworthy leader that people can count on to do what you say you will do, including acting within your competencies and limitations. Develop boundaries for you and your team that help create an environment of trust.

Learning to Rise

Face risk, uncertainty, and tough conversations with courage, clarity and empathy. Learning to rise is about acquiring resilience skills. Leaders trained in these skills are more likely to engage in courageous behaviors because they know how to get back up and become more tenacious as a result of it.

Take a Peek Inside

Over the course of 3 days, course participants will deep-dive into the four skill set's of courage that create more daring leaders. We will get to the root of how to show up, be deliberate, do brave work, have hard conversations, and develop meaningful relationships in our fast-paced, complex environments.

Why did you attend the
Dare to Lead™ workshop? 

I felt stuck in my evolution as a leader of a large, experienced team. I was at a point in my leadership where the tools I relied upon in the past for effective facilitation, inspiration, and meaning were not moving my team and I in the direction I envisioned in my head. I was responsible for their individual and collective development. There was great potential in my team that I was leaving on the table. Meanwhile, I was stretching myself beyond a sustainable capacity.

January 2020 Workshop


What lessons from Dare to Lead™ did you take with you and implement in your personal or professional life?

I use a different lesson almost every day! Understanding "Stormy First Drafts" helps me whenever I'm dealing with conflict, as does understanding how to mitigate the barriers to reckoning with emotion. "Clear is Kind" is what I say to myself every time I communicate with a colleague, friend, or family member. There are countless ways that I use what I've learned, but I think the biggest one is that you need to be "in the arena" to claim your wins and own your losses; I can't live my life as a spectator!
