Dare to Lead

Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.




Thought leader and TED talk phenomenon Dr Brené Brown reveals how to lead ourselves and others to transform the way we innovate, create and succeed.

Dr Brené Brown, research professor and international bestselling author, is renowned for tackling uncomfortable issues – meeting them head on with rigorous debate and presenting often surprising conclusions from her research as a social scientist. Now she is turning her attention to leadership and what it really means to be a great leader in this age of change and economic, political and social uncertainty. Based on new research conducted specifically for the book, The Wholehearted Leader will deconstruct and rebuild the very concept of what it means to be a great leader and propose a new model of leadership that starts with who we are.
True leadership has nothing to do with position, status or the number of direct reports we have. It’s about showing up, letting ourselves be seen, being courageous and providing a safe place for the people we lead to contribute, receive feedback and grow. This is what it means to be a Wholehearted Leader and this is how we need to model ourselves in order to create a bright future for ourselves and future generations.
