Dare to Lead™ Program

Courageous, Inspiring, Committed Leadership Customized for Your Organization

Brought to you by tnm coaching and based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated organizational development professionals personally trained and certified by Brené Brown.

20 years and 400,000 pieces of data have illustrated that across industries and around the world, the number one trigger of shame for men and women in the workplace is the fear of irrelevance.

It may sound like: “Am I up to speed?” “Do I have what it takes?” “Am I ready for the future of work?” “Do I need to learn more about AI, VR, machine learning, Agile, the 4th Industrial Revolution?”

No matter how it sounds in your team or organization (or in your own head), we live and work in environments that make us feel uncertain, at risk, and potentially emotionally exposed – Dr. Brown’s definition of vulnerability.

Those are the environments in which we lead. How do we create spaces where people are resilient and it’s safe to be brave, take initiative, innovate? After all, Google Project Aristotle research has found that the #1 predictor of successful teams is psychological safety. This work is about creating those conditions.

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. 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 armored leadership to daring leadership.

How can we roll out Dare To Lead™ in our organization?

The Dare to Lead™ Curriculum can be segmented and introduced as part of any existing program.
It can be adapted for mixed groups, intact teams, and executive leadership retreats.
