Topic: “Daring Greatly with Vulnerability and Values”

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat."                                            -Theodore Roosevelt

This quote by Teddy Roosevelt is the cornerstone of Brené Brown's work on daring leadership, and in her best-selling book, Dare to Lead, she inspires and challenges us to be daring leaders as we move into our uncharted next chapter! 

The October Coaching Community of Practice meeting will provide an overview of the four “daring” leadership skills that are at the foundation of Dr. Brown’s book and her companion curriculum. These skills include Rumbling with Vulnerability, Living our Values, Braving Trust, and Learning to Rise. Through breakouts, participants will consider their own "vulnerability rumble" and what a "call to courage" means to them as leaders in life and work. They will also have an opportunity to reflect on their values and how "integrity" supports bravery in the workplace.    

In advance of the workshop, participants are encouraged to complete the Daring Leadership assessment at the following link.  https://daretolead.brenebrown.com/assessment/
