About this event

Choose courage over comfort.

Join Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator and Executive Coach, Katie Fredricksen, for this virtual series, designed to support you in having more courage, joy and aliveness in your life and work. Whether you are a leader of a team in an organization, or an individual seeking to increase your self-awareness and courage, this workshop is for you!

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program. The most significant finding from Brené's research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable.

In this interactive virtual workshop you will join an intimate cohort of curious and committed participants from diverse backgrounds, teams, and organizations. Together we will focus on developing the self-awareness and courage-building skills that are needed to bravely navigate the new world in which we live and to become an even more conscious and courageous leader.

Program topics include:

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability - Vulnerability is not weakness. It's our most accurate measure of courage. Vulnerability is also at the heart of so many of the other qualities that people say they want in their lives and work: joy, belonging, empathy, creativity, resilience, trust, accountability, problem-solving abilities and more. You can't get to courage without rumbling with vulnerability.
  • Living into our Values - Being clear on our values helps us to navigate challenges and make difficult decisions. Practicing our values is different from professing them. When we practice our values, we have clarity about the behaviors that support us and which ones can be derailing.
  • BRAVING Trust - Trust is an essential element of relationships and yet it can feel challenging to engage in conversations about trust. When we define trust as a set of specific behaviors, it makes building trust, and discussing how to repair or strengthen it, possible.
  • Learning to Rise - If we are being brave with our lives, the question is not IF we will fall, but when. Learning resiliency is essential so that when we do fall, we can get back up and be ready for what's next. When we have the courage to walk into our story and own it, we get to write the ending. But when we don’t own our stories of failure, setbacks, and hurt - they own us.
