"Brené visited Pixar to talk with our filmmakers. Her message was important, as movies are best when they come from a place of vulnerability, when the people who make them encounter setbacks and are forced to overcome them, when they are willing to have their asses handed to them. It is easy to sit back and talk about the values of a safe and meaningful culture, but extraordinarily difficult to pull it off. You don’t achieve good culture without constant attention, without an environment of safety, courage, and vulnerability. These are hard skills, but they are teachable skills. Start with this book." (Ed Catmull, president, Pixar and Walt Disney Animation Studios)
"Whether you’re leading a movement or a start-up, if you’re trying to change an organizational culture or the world, Dare to Lead will challenge everything you think you know about brave leadership and give you honest, straightforward, actionable tools for choosing courage over comfort." (Tarana Burke, senior director, Girls for Gender Equity, founder, the Me Too movement)
"We asked Brené to bring her work on courage and vulnerability to our Air Force base. This is a tough audience, many of them with significant combat experience. Within five minutes, you could have heard a pin drop. Brené cuts through the noise and speaks to what makes us human and makes the mission happen. Dare to Lead is about real leadership: tenacious, from the heart, and full of grit." (Brigadier General Brook J. Leonard, United States Air Force)
"Brené is Google Empathy Lab’s Obi-Wan Kenobi. She has profoundly inspired our product leaders to design in and embrace vulnerability, rather than engineer it out. It’s a critical and transformative act to bring your alive, messy, wholehearted human self to work every day. Dare to Lead is the skillful and empowering Jedi training we have all been waiting for." (Danielle Krettek, founder, Google Empathy Lab)
From the Publisher
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

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 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!
I love it. Back into it again!
