By supporting teachers and helping to create more daring
classrooms, we have the potential to create braver, safer
spaces and build courage skills for educators and students
alike. This workshop will provide courage-building
resources to help them develop their own skills, and to
deepen connection and trust with their teams.
Daring Educators = Daring Classrooms
Dr. Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of
Houston and five-time New York Times best-selling
author, spent years researching leadership and
organizational cultures. She interviewed 150 global C suite level executives on the future of leadership, asking:
“What, if anything, about the way people are leading
today, needs to change in order for leaders to be
successful in a complex, rapidly changing environment?”.
Brené wrote in her 2018 book Dare to Lead, “There was
one answer across the interviews: We need braver leaders
and more courageous cultures.” Based on her research,
Brené developed Dare to Lead™ – an empirically based
courage-building program. It’s a game-changer for leaders
at all levels.
Dare to Lead™ training includes facilitation, self-reflection,
practical activities, dialogue, and short videos hosted by
Brené on the four teachable, observable, and measurable
courage skill sets:
1. Rumbling with Vulnerability: Facing risk, uncertainty, and
emotional exposure with courage and clarity.
2. Living into our Values: Identifying, operationalizing, and
practicing the beliefs that we hold most important.
3. BRAVING Trust: Creating or deepening connections in
relationships and teams based on the seven elements of
4. Learning to Rise: Learning and growing from the failures,
setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we
are brave with our lives.
