Changes are coming to Brave Leaders Inc


Big news! My new book, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts., will hit shelves in October.

Dare to Lead is an actionable, skills-building book based on everything we’ve learned from our current Brave Leaders Inc course, plus new research, new skills-building practices, tough conversation tools, and guides for building courageous cultures. You can think of it as Daring Greatly and Rising Strong transformed into a leadership playbook!

Here’s what’s coming next.

On August 15, 2018, we will retire the Brave Leader Access Pass which includes the Daring Leadership: The Four Pillars of Courage and Courage Deep Dive courses. If you choose to purchase before August 15th, you will continue to have access to your courses for one year from the date of purchase.

In mid-September 2018, we will launch a Dare to Lead hub on brenebrown.com where you will find assessments, downloads, and information on other new Dare to Lead programs.

Courage is contagious and your willingness to lean into this work has inspired us to be braver with our work.

  4. Build trust
  5. Put personal and organization values into practice
