Two-Day Workshop

“To be the person who we long to be—we must be vulnerable. We must take off the armor, put down the weapons, show up, and let ourselves be seen.” – Dr. Brené Brown

Having spent over two decades dedicated to studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completing a seven-year study on courageous leadership, Dr. Brené Brown’s research reveals that the ideal leader is someone who cultivates a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation. As a certified Dare to Lead™ facilitator, let Zach help you, your team, or your organization access greater potential by writing a courageous new story. This two-day workshop, Dare to Lead™, is your invitation to become a braver leader as you learn the four empirically-proven skills sets of courageous leadership that are teachable, measurable, and observable:
Rumbling with Vulnerability: Facing risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure with courage and clarity.
Living into our Values: Identifying, operationalizing, and practicing the beliefs that we hold most important.
Braving Trust: Creating or deepening connections in relationships and teams based on the seven elements of trust.
Learning to Rise: Learning and growing from the failures, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives.
It’s time to be a more courageous leader. Accept this invitation to get in the arena and dare greatly. Your work will be life-giving. Your leadership will be life-giving. Your legacy will be life-giving.
