Dare to Lead: Summer Book Club for Leaders

What do leadership and vulnerability have to do with each other?

Brene Brown says,

“I’ve spent twenty years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and I recently completed a seven-year study on brave leadership. Leadership is not about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage. The world is desperate for braver leaders. It’s time for all of us to step up”

Brene Brown is a fellow Texan who writes on vulnerability and whole-hearted living. She has applied her research to leadership with Dare to Lead.

“The goal of Dare to Lead is to share everything we’ve learned about taking off the armor and showing up as leaders in a skills-based and actionable playbook. Here are a few of the big ideas that emerged from this research”:

* You cannot get to courage without rumbling with vulnerability. Embrace the Suck

* Self-awareness and self-love matter. Who we are is how we lead.

* Courage is contagious
