Dare to Lead

Creating courageous, inspiring, committed leaders for your organisation

Giving leaders the courage they need to be daring, innovative and ready for anything

Courage is contagious.
Dr Brené Brown

Courage is contagious. To scale daring leadership and build courage in teams and organisations, we must cultivate cultures where brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the norm and the expectation. Where hiding out and armouring up are neither necessary nor rewarded.

Brought to you by TNM Coaching and based on the research of Dr Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is a courage-building program facilitated by organisational development professionals personally trained and certified by Dr Brené Brown.

What to expect on this program

Integrity is choosing courage over comfort; it’s choosing what’s right over what’s fun, fast or easy; and it’s practicing your values, not just professing them.
Dr Brené Brown

20 years and 400,000 pieces of data have illustrated that across industries and countries, the number one trigger of shame for men and women in the workplace is the fear of irrelevance.

It may sound like: “Am I up to speed?” “Do I have what it takes?” “Am I ready for the future of work?” “Do I need to learn more about AI, VR, machine learning, Agile, the 4th Industrial Revolution?”

No matter how it sounds in your team or organisation (or in your own head), we live and work in environments that make us feel uncertain, at risk, and potentially emotionally exposed – Dr Brown’s definition of vulnerability. This forces us to bunker down and take the path that offers the least amount of risk.

Google Project Aristotle research has found that the #1 predictor of successful teams is psychological safety. So how can leaders create spaces where people are resilient and it’s safe to be brave, take initiative, and innovate? By showing courage and integrity.

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 through workshops, training, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organisations move from armoured leadership to daring leadership.

Learning outcomes

Participants who complete the program leave equipped with four specific skillsets that build their courage, resilience and integrity, enabling them to lead from a place of confidence to create safe, secure environments where their teams can flourish.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 16-hour Dare to Lead™ program will receive access to a Dare to Lead™ trained badge for their LinkedIn account.

How participants learn

The Dare to Lead™ curriculum is flexible and can be segmented and introduced as part of any existing program and adapted for intact teams, mixed groups (different business units, functions or geographies), and executive leadership retreats.

The full Dare to Lead™ curriculum is delivered via 16 hours of face-to-face training which can be divided into two non-consecutive days or four half-days with time allocated for personalised leadership project work between sessions.

Dare To Lead™ can also be tailored into a one-day, half-day or keynote session as needed.

This program is delivered by one of TNM Coaching’s certified Dare to Lead™ facilitators, some of whom specialise in executive coaching, while others specialise in organisational transformation through leadership development. Your facilitator will depend on your specific needs and will be allocated by Dr Rebecca L. Self who is a certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator based in Zürich, Switzerland and oversees TNM’s Dare to Lead™ programs.

Participants will benefit from

  • Fun, relaxed and interactive sessions that go beyond standard professional development programs
  • Highly experienced trainers with decades of leadership and coaching experience in an industry relevant to them
  • A holistic approach that develops their mind, soul and spirit
  • An approach that is tailored to their current needs and business environment
  • Learning that fits within a tailored development program
