12 minute affiliate marketing

Brene Brown – a four time #1 New York Times best-selling author – has spent the past two decades studying emotions and experiences, and how to use them to create meaning in our lives. In Dare To Lead, she’s turned her focus to how to use those principles to leadership.

The outcome of that work is four skill sets that are teachable and measurable, and thus, can make a positive difference for you and your entire company. Join us for the next 12 minutes as we explore how you can Dare To Lead.

Part One: Rumbling with Vulnerability

Daring is not saying, “I’m willing to risk failure.” Daring is saying, “I know I will eventually fail, and I’m still all in.” Vulnerability is the emotion that we experience during times of uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure. There are six myths of vulnerability.

Myth #1: Vulnerability is a weakness. Truth: One cannot be courageous without also being vulnerable.

Myth #2: I don’t do vulnerability. Truth: You can do vulnerability, or it can do you. When you pretend that you “don’t do vulnerability,” you let fear drive your thinking and behaviour.

Myth #3: I can do it alone. Truth: Humans are hardwired for connection.

Myth #4: You can engineer the uncertainty and discomfort out of vulnerability. Truth: When you try to strip uncertainty, risk and emotional exposure from the relational experience, you bankrupt courage.
