Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.
When we dare to lead, we donât pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We donât see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We donât avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when itâs 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 weâre choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as weâre scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI canât do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.
Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author BrenÃ© Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question:Â
How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?Â
In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BS style that millions of readers have come to expect and love.
Brown writes, âOne of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of four skill sets that are 100 percent teachable, observable, and measurable. Itâs learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. Itâs why weâre here.â
Whether youâve read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or youâre new to BrenÃ© Brownâs work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership.
