About the Event

Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage building program for leaders. We define ‘Leaders’ as “someone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and has the courage to develop that potential”.

Dates: Saturday 27th & Sunday 28th March, Saturday 10th & Sunday 11th April.

Time: 1600-2100 GMT (there will be breaks during the session)

Participants are required to attend all sessions, no recording of the sessions will be available. 

Places are limited. 


The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage building skills to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armoured leadership to daring leadership.

The four skill sets are:

  • Rumbling with vulnerability
  • Living into our Values
  • BRAVING Trust
  • Learning to Rise

Included in the registration fee -

  • PDF Dare to Lead™ workbook
  • Pre-programme activity – questionnaires and reflective questions
  • Activities between the March and April sessions


The programme will be led by Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitators, Adé Adeniji and Darren Brady.

Additional Information about the course:

- Spaces are limited in order to provide focused learning & support.

- This course discusses leadership and working methods and so exercises may ask you to consider how you work and how can you identify new ways to integrate courage, vulnerability, boundaries & trust. Participants will not be required to share personal experiences. This is a learning environment, not a therapeutic space and so the facilitators will be providing support in a coaching manner rather than as therapists.

- This Zoom course will invite participants to have their camera on and to actively participate in discussions & questions.

- Attendance is required and recording will not be possible. If you miss a session the facilitators may guide you to some information so you can catch up as much as possible before the next session.

- When registering to this event your contact details will be shared with the facilitators so they can send you more information, handouts and material as needed.
