To scale daring leadership and build courage in teams and organizations, we must cultivate a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation, and armor is not necessary or rewarded.
Brené defines a leader as “Anyone who takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes and has the courage to develop that potential.”
We are all leaders.

I was very familiar with Brene Brown's work and had read Dare to Lead prior to coming to the training led by Julie Boll. I am so glad I stepped out of my comfort zone and opened my heart to this tremendous work. Not only did I learn very practical ways to become courageous in my work life, I found everything to be incredibly applicable in my personal life as well. Even after day 1, I began using some of the language learned and saw an immediate impact on how I worked with others and how I gave myself more grace to be honest and make mistakes. Thank you!

It was the best training I’ve attended! We sent a team of educational leaders from our district and we have already had numerous discussion surrounding the workshop and how we can improve as a group and as individuals. This program made me step out of my comfort zone and I will be forever grateful for it!
~ Andy Stumpf, Principal, Winchester Public School District
I am so grateful I had the opportunity to participate in this experience, both on a personal and professional level. In the end, just having the time set aside and dedicated to getting down to the human level of how people communicate and examining the reasons behind why some people are effective and others are not was extremely helpful.
~Emily Cook, Leaders for Life Program Coordinator
Even if you’ve read the book, Julie’s program is SO impactful. It really takes Brene's research and concepts and helps you apply them to your life and goals and areas of growth. Can’t recommend it enough! And Julie Boll is such a fantastic facilitator.

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program. It is designed to create opportunities to develop courage-building skills through workshops and trainings with individuals, teams, and organizations to help them move from armored leadership to daring leadership.
Dare to Lead™ is designed for individuals who are ready to embrace brave leadership, shed their armor and show up with whole hearts in their work and life.
According to Brené’s research, there are four components of courage-building:
- Rumbling With Vulnerability
- Living Into Our Values
- BRAVING Trust
- Learning To Rise
Further information about the program is available at https://daretolead.brenebrown.com.
