Vulnerability researcher and TED superstar Brené Brown supplements her New York Times bestsellers, Daring Greatly and Rising Strong, with new research, personal experiences, case studies and data from interviews with top leaders. She issues a call to lead bravely and foster courageous workplace cultures. Brown explains that, in contrast to “armored” leaders who act from a stance of self-protection and self-interest, daring leadership comes from a place of courage, heart and confidence.
She offers practical guidelines and a process for applying the lessons of her previous books to your leadership practice. Her process can be arduous: you must commit to looking within yourself and initiating tough conversations with your colleagues and co-workers. However, Brown stresses that you can learn the skills and behaviors of daring leadership at any point in your career.
