Praise for Dare to Lead
Applying the principles from Dare to Lead to my work as a principal has transformed the way I show up with parents, students, and colleagues, and how I lead. Brené’s words, stories, and examples connect with our hearts and minds, and her actionable approach gives us the tools to be braver with our lives and our work. - Kwabena Mensah, PhD, assistant superintendent, Fort Bend ISD, Principal of the Year, Katy ISD and Texas Alliance of Black School Educators
Brené truly gives it all away in Dare to Lead. Courage is a set of teachable skills, and she teaches us exactly how to build those muscles with research, stories, examples, and new language. The future belongs to brave leaders, and she’s written the ultimate playbook for daring leadership. - Scott Harrison, founder and CEO, charity: water

I do find her examples and stories very American. I think there are some workplace practices she references that are more common to American workplaces. However, overall I got a lot out of this book.
I think as a leader it’s important to be well read, to explore a number of different theories and practices and find what works for you. I may not adopt everything Browne recommends but there are certainly some lessons in here I’ve already tested out!
Dare to Lead is such a book for me.
Even whilst still reading it I started putting what I was learning into practice. Allowing to become more vulnerable. Openly owning the stories that occur in my head, particularly around my former partner and co-parent.
Learning about my two core values was a fascinating experience of self understanding. I am starting to look for more opportunities to live by and express my values everyday.
Whilst I am still working on being more vulnerable, brave and afraid, I know that curiosity and open mindedness are my friends.
Finally, thanks to Dr Brené Brown, I believe it when I say I am enough, I am worthy. More important than believing that I am enough, I know that I am enough. I know it like I know the sun rises in the east.
I love it. Back into it again!

So when I started on a leadership course at work, I decided to buy Dare To Lead by Brené Brown.
Dare To Lead is about leadership that is vulnerable, values-based, trusting and resilient. The book is split into four parts.
The first and biggest part is Rumbling with Vulnerability. In this section Brown discusses what vulnerability is, why it is important, myths about vulnerability, using courage to drop our armor as leaders, dealing with shame and empathy and curiosity grounded in confidence.
The second part is Living Into Our Values. Values are very important to me, so unsurprisingly this was my favorite part of the book. This section covers what our own values are, what organisational values can be and how to turn values into measurable behaviours. The List of Values activity I completed with some of my colleagues at work and I found it an incredibly useful in terms of learning more about them and what they value. Since I have also contributed to a consultation at work around our organisational values.
The third part of the book is Braving Trust. This section of the book is all about building trust as a leader and recognising how trust is built up gradually over time and can be easily lost.
The fourth part of the book is Learning to Rise which is all about resilience. This part of the book is about recognising emotion within ourselves and others as a leader, being curious about emotions and being self-aware enough to recognise what is going on emotionally for ourselves and others.
Throughout Dare To Lead are many helpful strategies that if implemented would make you a better leader. Including strategies around: having difficult conversations, increasing self-awareness, being aware of the values of ourselves and of the people we lead, being aware of the stories we tell ourselves (that may or may not be true), how to build trust and courage in the people that you lead.
Dare To Lead is written in a way that feels like you’re having a conversation with Brown. She gives examples from her own experience and also asks open questions styled in a coaching method to encourage the reader to think about how these experiences relate to their own life.
