  • Dare to Lead

    In her 1 NYT bestsellers, Bren?? Brown taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers and culture shifters, she???s showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead.,Leadership is not about titles, status and power over people. Leaders are people who hold themselves accountable for recognising the potential in people and ideas, and developing that potential. This is a book for everyone who is ready to choose courage over comfort, make a difference and lead.,When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it and work to align authority and accountability. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into the vulnerability that???s necessary to do good work.,But daring leadership in a culture that’s defined by scarcity, fear and uncertainty requires building courage skills, which are uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the same time we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines can’t do better and faster. ,Empathy, connection and courage to start.,Bren?? Brown spent the past two decades researching the emotions that give meaning to our lives.

And, how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?, answers these questions and gives us actionable strategies and real examples from her new research-based, courage-building programme.,Bren?? writes, ???One of the most important findings of my career is that courage can be taught, developed and measured. Courage is a collection of four skill sets supported by twenty-eight behaviours. All it requires is a commitment to doing bold work, having tough conversations and showing up with our whole hearts. Easy? No. Choosing courage over comfort is not easy. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and work. It’s why we’re here.???

Offering new perspective on why the women’s leadership movement has stalled, and packed with actionable advice, Tiffany Dufu’s , urges women to embrace imperfection, to expect less of themselves and more from others–only then can they focus on what they truly care about, devote the necessary energy to achieving their real goals, and create the type of rich, rewarding life we all desire.
