Call to Courage: Brave Work Though Conversations and Showing Up With Our Whole Hearts   

While calls to courage can be loud and impossible to ignore, they can also appear as faint whispers. In this workshop, we will explore a courage-building program to develop brave leaders and teams.  

Based on the work and research of Dr. Brené Brown, daring leadership is a collection of skills that are 100% teachable. Its learning and practice requires brave work, tough conversations and showing up with our whole hearts. In this workshop, we will do all three.
