LEADER: Anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential. – Brené Brown

What if you weren’t born to be a leader? What if your “boss” isn’t a good leader? Should you worry? Should you give up, “fall in line,” and wait for others to show you the way?

Positively, absolutely, without any doubt, NO!

Leadership is a skill that is teachable, observable, and measurable! Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage—and help others discover their potential. Let’s explore leadership through the work of Brené Brown’s twenty years of studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and her recent seven-year study on brave leadership. The world is desperate for brave leaders. Join us as we dive into the 4 skillsets of Brave Leadership. It’s time for all of us to step up, help each other, and create something better than where we started.
