Dare to Lead Programme

Withinsight Coaching and Training will provide a bespoke, deeply practical, skills-based training programme for up to 12 senior leaders.  The aim of the programme is to provide each participant with an opportunity to learn and explore what conditions need to be present in the business in order for trust, psychological safety and creativity to thrive.   Each participant will also build and develop their own leadership skills to take back into the business on completion of the programme.  The depth and breadth of the training programme will uniquely prepare each participant to overcome the considerable challenges faced in their day to day leadership roles.

Why this leadership Programme?

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

Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly lists. 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.

In 2012 Google launched Project Aristotle. The aim of this study was to discover what goes into making a successful team. Google spent two years studying its teams and identified five traits that successful teams shared – dependability, structure and clarity, meaning, impact, and psychological safety.  The most important of which is psychological safety. The Dare to Lead programme uniquely teaches each participant how to create psychological safety by offering the tools to create strong, trusting relationships in teams.
