Dare to Lead-October 5, 7, 12, 14, 19, 21, 26, 28

To scale daring leadership and build courage in teams and organizations, we have to cultivate a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation, and armor is not necessary or rewarded. Dare to Lead™ is the ultimate playbook for developing brave leaders and courageous cultures. This program builds the skills we need to show up with other people, try new behaviors, experience falls and failures, get back up, learn, and try again.

Based on the research of Brené Brown, the Dare to Lead™ program is an empirically based, courage-building program based on four skills sets that are teachable, observable, and measurable. This training program, led by Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator Rose Markey, will equip participants with language, tools, and exercises to put these four skills into immediate practice.

  • Rumbling with Vulnerability: face risk, uncertainty, and tough conversations with courage, clarity, and empathy.
  • Living into Our Values: identify what you stand for and how to show up from a place of integrity every day.
  • BRAVING Trust: build meaningful and authentic connections with your teams, colleagues and customers so you can work together from a foundation of trust.
  • Learning to Rise: become aware of your emotions and stories and learn how to show up and lead with courage - even when faced with failure, disappointment, and setbacks.

This program is offered as an eight part series of three hour workshops and includes the Dare To Lead™ workbook and trained badge for your LinkedIn profile. This program is most effective when offered to in-tact leadership teams who want to change and improve their culture.  This program is also offered in an open-enrollment format to any UVA employee or team member.  Further information can be obtained by contacting Rose Markey at rem5x@virginia.edu
