    Dare to Lead™ • The Daring Way™ • Rising Strong™

    The Daring Way™ is an empirically based training and certification program for helping professionals, based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The work focuses on courage building, shame resilience, and uncovering the power of vulnerability. The methodology is designed for work with individuals, couples, families, and groups.

    These concepts help you develop the necessary skills to:

    • initiate difficult or challenging conversations to reveal a path out of conflict
    • address issues directly rather than skirting them, and fix the problem rather than pinning blame
    • draw on courage to take risks and share ideas
    • define and measure the goals of your partnership, team or organization
    • live as your authentic self, according to your own values
