Don’t think you are a leader? Think again…

According to Dr. Brené Brown a leader is“Anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential.”

About The Dare to Lead Program

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.

The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage building skills through workshops, trainings, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 24-hour Dare to Lead™ program will receive a Dare to Lead Trained digital certificate and a digital badge that be added to their LinkedIn account.

Further information is available at daretolead.brenebrown.com

Note:  This program is also available for teams or workgroups in the full 24 hour or an 8 hour overview version; and can be offered remotely or in person. Contact Sheila Cameron.

WORKSHOP: MANAGING TRANSITIONS: MAKING THE MOST OF CHANGE

Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change

Facilitated by: Sheila Cameron

For many of us, change is a consistent part of our work lives, whether taking on a new job, learning a new system, or re-tooling how we do things.  Sometime change is easy, and other times it is difficult and does not seem to take hold.

In their book, “Managing Transitions: Making the Most of Change”, William and Susan Bridges provide a helpful model that addresses change and transition, along with proven strategies that can help us manage the process successfully.

 In this workshop, we will:

  • Explore the connection between change and transition
  • Learn strategies to successfully move through the change and transition process
  • Identify ways to support others through the change and transition process
  • Adopt proactive approaches to managing and leading change

**All participants will be offered a copy the book “Making the Most of Change, by William and Susan Bridges” **
