Person leaping over ravineJoin us for a conversation about the four courage skills shared in Brené Brown's latest bestseller, Dare to Lead. Participants will get an introduction to these courage-building skills: rumbling with vulnerability, living into our values, braving trust, and learning to rise.  

Brené Brown, a research professor at the University of Houston, has spent two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. Most recently she completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. 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. 

Kathleen will lead this session remotely, with interactive activities supported in person.
