Product description


Brene 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 * We asked Brene 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. Brene 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 * 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 * Brene 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 * With Dare to Lead, Brene brings decades of research to bear in a practical and insightful guide to courageous leadership. This book is a road map for anyone who wants to lead mindfully, live bravely, and dare to lead. * Sheryl Sandberg, COO, Facebook, founder of LeanIn.Org and OptionB.Org *

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Path to Wholehearted Living - Brene walks you through the steps on how to Rumble
Reviewed in the United States on 22 October 2018
Recommend that you dog-ear pages 70, 76, and 77. Brene Brown excels once again and goes further with her research and writing to describe behaviors and emotions that we've all felt. More importantly, she gives us constructive actions we can take to live and work more effectively and wholeheartedly.

Page 70 sums up the journey her book will take you on should you chose to go. It reads, "Leaders must either invest a reasonable amount of time attending to fears and feelings, or squander an unreasonable amount of time trying to manage ineffective and unproductive behavior."

Pages 76 and 77 give you sixteen specific examples of Armored Leadership and Daring Leadership. You'll recognize them immediately. And you will be able to call out the behaviors that are holding you back or propelling you forward. On subsequent pages she unpacks the examples so that we can put the words to work for ourselves and our colleagues.
