We will guide participants through the four skillsets identified by Dr. Brené Brown for courageous leadership:

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability
  • Living into Our Values
  • Braving Trust
  • Learning to Rise

This past year, we were selected and trained by Brené Brown to became certified facilitators of the Dare to Lead™ curriculum. Our first open enrollment Dare to Lead™ workshop sold out in just a two weeks, so we are excited to offer this second session. This workshop will guide up to 16 leaders through the Dare to Lead™ curriculum and includes interactive exercises, vibrant, in-depth discussion, and key insights from Brené Brown’s research across a wide range of organizations. By participating in this workshop you will enhance the foundational skills that enable you to tackle the hardest parts of your role as a leader.

The cost of the two-day workshop is $2,200 per participant.  An early-bird discount of $200 is offered if you register by the early-bird deadline.  The workshop will be held at 2100 Southbridge Parkway, Suite 490.  This workshop is a great investment in yourself.  To register visit the registration page.  If you cannot attend this session, but would like to be added to a list to be notified about future sessions, please send an email to admin@mcdonaldgraham.com.

Our goal with this open enrollment workshop is to provide the Dare to Lead  curriculum to individuals who do not have access to it at their organization.  We will work to create a cohort that is a good blend of people from different companies, and thereby, will cap the number of individuals who can participate from any one organization.  Additionally, if you work for a non-profit and are interested in one of the two reduced rate spots in the workshop, please reach out to Susan Andrews at admin@mcdonaldgraham.com.  


We hope you can join us as we share this groundbreaking work.  If you have questions, please reach out to Susan Andrews at admin@mcdonaldgraham.com.

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals. Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly lists.

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. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour Dare to Lead™ program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put a Dare to Lead™ Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.
