Dare to Lead™ Program

Dare Greatly. Lead Courageously.


Courage and Authentic Connections

Organizations are undergoing rapid changes in these volatile and uncertain times, with leaders across functional teams faced with individual challenges and constraints.

It is human nature to push for our own interest and agenda – in doing so, we forget to work as a whole to drive goals aligned with the organizational values.

How do we achieve effective collaboration across teams? We believe it has to start from within each of us – we tend to put on armors to push through sticky situations – but this pushes away genuine connections too. We need to have the courage to embrace our vulnerability, engage in tough feedback conversations, and share our successes and challenges – so we can expand our potential, build trust and authentic connections to rise strong in demanding situations.

Our Dare to Lead™ program is an empirically based courage-building program based on 20 years of research by Dr. Brené Brown. Join us to become a daring and courageous leader by building the four skill sets of courageous leadership that are tactical, actionable, and practical.

Learning Goals:

  • Understand why vulnerability matters as a leader and as a person
  • Able to tackle tough conversations and move to straight talk and action
  • Practice empathetic leadership and lead with warmth instead of from fear
  • Learn to build trust and create meaningful connection
  • Identify your personal values and behaviors that support them

A highly customizable courage-building program for your organization:


Delivered by a certified Dare to Lead™ facilitator for the first time in Hong Kong, our unique program serves as a glue for organizations seeking to better engage team members and enhance cross-team collaboration through these changing times.

Our program offers the space for team members to work individually within themselves, and challenge each other to choose courage over comfort.

By the end of the program, team members will learn practical and actionable tools to build connections through empathy, manage tough conversations, give and receive direct feedback and take actions. The outcome is the development of a strong and authentic team culture based on shared purpose and goals.
