March 2021 Virtual Chapter Meeting: 

Dare to Lead™- Having Brave Conversations When it Matters Most

with Amy Leneker

Presentation Description:

What would happen if we chose courage over comfort and had brave conversations? How would that change our teams and organizations? In this fun and informative workshop, we will explore what it means to have a brave conversation and how we can use the four skills of courage to help. This workshop is based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown and her best-selling book, Dare to Lead. The content is especially targeted for the current HR environment where HR leaders are navigating uncertainty and daring leadership is more needed now than ever!


  • Understanding of Brene Brown's research in a collection of four skill sets (rumbling with vulnerability, living into our values, braving trust, and learning to rise) that are teachable, measurable, and observable. 
  • During the session, participants engage in learning, reflection, conversation, and practice of these skills in order to better support the cultivation of their own brave leadership and courageous culture to navigate difficult conversations, and hold themselves and others accountable for success. 
  • Understanding vulnerability; to understand why vulnerability (risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure) is the foundational skill set of courage and to recognize that vulnerability is the birthplace of many of the behaviors that define daring leadership, including creativity, accountability, and difficult conversations. 
  • Become equipped with the skills and tools necessary to become daring leaders—leaders who lean into vulnerability, take smart risks, use their values to guide their behaviors, and purposefully build trust in their relationships, creating a culture where brave conversations are the norm and armor is not needed or rewarded.
