Does your role require you to be courageous these days? It does for most leaders whether they are starting their leadership career or well along the way.  Join us in this interactive session to explore the fascinating leadership research of Dr. Brené Brown. You’ll learn practical skills and tools gleaned from her five best-selling books and you’ll have time to practice some of them as well in small, safe groups. Key content areas include: daring leadership, cultural safety, myths of vulnerability, empathy tools and courageous conversation skills. We invite you to spend a couple of hours to invest in yourself and to enhance your toolkit. Some fun during the webinar is promised as well!
