The Daring Way: A Workshop on Daring Leadership

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risk, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable. Based on the pioneering research of Dr. Brené Brown, this work dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. Vulnerability is indeed at the core of difficult emotions, but it is also the birthplace of creativity and innovation, authenticity, adaptability to change and accountability – the key elements that every business needs to survive and thrive.
In Daring Leadership™ you will learn how to:
Model vulnerability and transparency and expect it of others, creating a climate of risk-tolerance and unfiltered trust.
Normalize the discomfort of courageous conversations and master the art of giving, receiving and soliciting engaged feedback that moves people and processes forward.
Re-humanize the workplace and eliminate shame and blame as management styles.
Cultivate an environment where empathy is a valued asset, accountability is an expectation rather than an exception, and the human need for belonging is honored.
Room A | 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
