The Authentic Leader: How Courage Prevents Burnout and Builds Resilience

Thursday 10:30 – 11:30 AM

Session Description

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, this class will introduce the Dare to Lead™ curriculum, a courage-building program for leaders. Daring leaders lead with curiosity and courage, even with and most especially when it comes to emotions at work. They know how to recognize when emotions are running their leadership in an unhealthy way and instead choose to lean in with curiosity to prevent burnout, choose resilience skills, and lead well. Participants of this talk will walk away with new tools, skills, and language to create healthy and courageous team cultures.
