Event description


“Sometimes the bravest and most important thing you can do is just show up.” Brené Brown

Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

On a daily basis we are all making decisions, having conversations, creating change and being responsible for people and outcomes. We need courage to make life happen.

Which begs the question... can you learn to be more courageous?

When the Dare to Lead™ research team asked people what stands in the way of great leadership and cultures, they said "We need brave leaders and more courageous conversations". Through their research they discovered that courage is a TEACHABLE, OBSERVABLE and MEASUREABLE skill set.

Ask yourself "How would my organisation change if we started having braver and fuller conversations with each other?"

You need to be tough, you need to be brave, you need to be strong, AND you also need to be compassionate and empathetic. Sometimes it can feel like an impossible balancing act. Dr Brown's research shows us how we can reach that balance and improve the way we live and work.

We all want to be more courageous and this program teaches you how.

About the Dare To Lead™ program

Based on the research of Dr Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.

Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers.

NOTE: Dare to Lead™ Training was developed by Dr Brené Brown and her research and education team and is facilitated by Michelle Holland, Certified DTL Facilitator.

In this 2 day workshop you will learn the 4 skill sets to build courage, and discover what stands in our way when we Dare to Lead™.

If you have a whole team wanting to learn these life changing skills please contact Michelle on michelle@synergyiq.com.au to organise an in house program for your team.

Please access the online Brochure for more information about the program, including the Learning Objectives.

We are limiting the seats to ensure you are able to get the most out of the program, so please book early as we have already had a number of enquiries about this program and our last two sold out. Thanks!

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

There are plenty of parking options around this area (but beware they fill up fast). The public transport options are excellent (tram is a 4 minute walk). All else fails, there is always Uber. The Entertainment Centre's car park is only $4 for the whole day. But get there early or you miss out.

What can I bring into the event?

You will receive a hardcopy workbook, so please bring a pen. A note book is also useful to add anything that you don't want included in your workbook. Please no laptops or large tablets on the tables as they distract from the learning experience.

Also, please bring a jacket, cardigan or a wrap as it can get cold in conference rooms.

And most importantly - bring an open heart and a willing spirit... we're choosing courage over comfort in this program.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Any additional questions please contact info@synergyiq.com.au

Can you run this program for our whole team or organisation?

Absolutely! We would love to talk to you about how Dare to Lead™ has been the catalyst for many organisations to change the way they work together. We can run small or large group programs in house. Please contact us on info@synergyiq.com.au and we'll speak to you about the best way of managing your business needs.

Is there food?

We'll supply coffee/tea, waters and refreshments throughout the day. We will supply a simple lunch and will endeavour to cater for dietary requirements where we can. If you have a very strict diet it would be wise to bring your own snacks and food just in case.

Why 2 Days????

Yes, 2 days is a big commitment, but then so is leadership and life. What's two days if it improves the rest of your life?
