Join Sarah Ciavarri, a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, for an interactive two-day workshop focused on the latest research of Dr. Brené Brown. Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation-Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. 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 her latest book, Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher's Weekly list.
The most significant finding from Brené's latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable and observable. This two-day workshop will focus on developing these courage-building skills to help leaders move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
What does it take to remain calm and engaged in conflict? To find continual meaning and purpose in work, and to have grounded confidence? We will explore critical moments in leadership and how the stories we create about them influence not only our self-understanding as leaders but also our actions and behaviors. Through self-exploration, large and small group discussion we will learn new patterns of critical awareness and practices that will empower leaders to live and lead authentically with increased courage and connection.
