Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is a collection of four skill sets that are 100% teachable. It’s learning and practice that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with our whole hearts. 

The goal of the Dare to Lead™ Retreat is to share everything we’ve learned about “taking off the armor” and showing up as leaders in a skills-based and actionable playbook.
