  • The Dare to Lead™ Leadership Retreat is designed to help ROE#33 Leaders develop deep self-awareness, increase their level of awareness of others, recognize their impact on others, and finally; articulate their own personal Call to Courage. This is the critical skill-building our leaders need to challenge inequitable systems, create environments that support innovative problem solving, and lead change in their communities.

    Twenty years of research and 400,000 pieces of data tell us courage is observable, measurable and teachable. There are four distinct skill sets of courage. In the Dare to Lead™ program, we spend time developing knowledge and skill in each of the four areas:

    Vulnerability. The willingness and ability to rumble with vulnerability is the foundational skill of courage-building. Without this core skill, the other three skill sets are impossible to put into practice. Consider this carefully— our ability to be daring leaders will never be greater than our capacity for vulnerability.

    Values. Living into our values means that we do more than profess our values, we practice them. We walk our talk— we are clear about what we believe and hold important, and we take care that our intentions, words, thoughts, and behaviors align with those beliefs.

    Trust. Courageous leaders know how to build trust in their teams. Lack of trust has serious ramifications. If we really care about our organization's bottom line, we have to care about trust. In a research study conducted by Fortune, companies with high levels of trust "beat the average annualized returns of the S&P 500 by a factor of three."

    Learning to Rise (resilience). Leaders who are trained in rising skills as part of a courage-building program are more likely to engage in courageous behaviors because they know how to get back up after a fall. The Learning to Rise process involves learning from setbacks and disappointments and applying key learnings to future situations. Finding the key learnings depends on recognizing and getting curious about emotion and comparing the story in our heads with the facts.

    The Dare to Lead™ program is designed for individuals and teams who are ready to embrace brave leadership, shed their armor, and show up with whole hearts in their work and life. To scale daring leadership and build courage in teams and organizations, we must cultivate a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation, and armor is not necessary or rewarded.
