According to author and researcher Brené Brown, 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.
And instead of about-turning when we come up against 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. We have to ask ourselves, What can we do better?
The answer? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.
In this wonderfully enlightening book, four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown uses research, stories, and examples to show us what is required to be a daring leader in the workplace and life using the no-BS style that millions of readers have come to expect and love.
Brené Brown 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 is also a visiting professor in management at the University of Texas at Austin’s McCombs School of Business.
Brown has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of six #1 New York Times bestsellers: Atlas of the Heart, The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which is the culmination of a seven-year study on courage and leadership.
With Tarana Burke, she co-edited the bestselling anthology You Are Your Best Thing: Vulnerability, Shame Resilience, and the Black Experience.
She hosts the Unlocking Us and Dare to Lead podcasts, and her TEDx talk, “The Power of Vulnerability,” is one of the top five most-viewed TED talks in the world with more than 50 million views. Her Netflix special, The Call to Courage, is the first filmed lecture by a researcher on the streaming service.
Brené Brown lives in Houston, Texas, with her husband, Steve. They have two children, Ellen and Charlie.
