Group Details

Here's just a bit more about the group, along with the full schedule so you can gauge if it's a good fit for you.

This Growth Group is designed to encourage you as you develop your leadership skills, and Dare to Lead will challenge past ideas of what we all likely imagined as kids when we pictured a “strong” leader. Whether you lead a team at work, lead volunteers in your community, or lead people in your home, we believe that strong leadership begins with leading ourselves well. You will meet weekly for one hour with a group of like-minded people as we study the book Dare to Lead by Brené Brown. Together, we will explore the courage it takes to truly lead well and to operate from a place of humanity and truthfulness.

Dare to Lead is the best of the best between Brown’s well-loved books, Rising Strong and Daring Greatly. Leadership is hard. While it does require us to dig deep and lead with strength, there is and should be room for vulnerability as well. The research-based principles and actionable tools presented in Dare to Lead encourage us to live bravely. In our discussions, we will dig into these principles and tools, and walk away with a renewed belief in our ability to lead with empathy, honesty, and confidence.

About the content


When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work. But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.

Questions you may have

Where can I buy Dare to Lead?

We always suggest you start by checking your local small business bookstores. You can also find this book at nearly all online booksellers. You can also find the book on Amazon and on Audible.

What if I can't make the scheduled days or times?

You can send us an email to reach out if you're interested in another day or time. If we have enough people interested in a new day or time, we'll try to create a group that fits into that schedule.

How do I download Zoom?

You can download Zoom from the website. Look for "Zoom Client for Meetings" for the computer version or look for "Zoom Mobile Apps" for iOS or Android.

Do I have to join with video or can I just use audio?

You are welcome to just call in via a phone number provided, or use Zoom with your camera turned off. The conversations are most engaging when we can all see one another, but that's not always possible for every person.

Does this really cost upwards of $199.00?!

It sure does. We're committed to delivering a value above and beyond any price you pay. If you don’t think this group will bring your more value than the cost, then it simply may not be for you. These groups aren’t for everyone, so don’t sweat it.

Does this really only cost $199.00?!

That’s right! We're committed to delivering a value above and beyond any price you pay. Sometimes we leave some profit opportunity on the table in the name of adding value to as many people as we can.

I have a different question.

If you have a question not answered here, just send us an email and we'll get back to you quickly. Be sure to mention the Growth Group for Dare to Lead.

The greatest danger you face in this moment is the idea that you will make intentional growth a priority later.
