Communicating with clear intention and kindness is the new leadership imperative. Leaders must work to promote healthy and inclusive cultures through raising consciousness around the importance of courage in leadership. This promotes organizational excellence and safer work spaces, where we move from surviving to thriving.
Join us for a 4-day Dare to Lead™ all-inclusive Executive Package from June 5th - June 8th, 2023 at the beautiful White Point Beach Resort.
REMOVE THE ARMOUR.
LEAN INTO COURAGE.
What is Dare to Lead™?
We're so glad you asked —based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program.
Having spent over two decades dedicated to studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completing a seven-year study on courageous leadership, Dr. Brené Brown’s research reveals that the ideal leader is someone who cultivates a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation.
Dare to Lead™ is your invitation to become a braver leader as you learn the four empirically proven skill sets of courageous leadership that are teachable, measurable, and observable:
Rumbling with Vulnerability: Facing risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure with courage and clarity.
Living into our Values: Identifying, operationalizing, and practicing the beliefs that we hold most important.
Braving Trust: Creating or deepening connections in relationships and teams based on the seven elements of trust.
Learning to Rise: Learning and growing from the failures, setbacks, and disappointments that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives.
When done right, these skills enable leaders to create safe spaces for teams to experiment with creativity and innovation, which in turn leads to increases in productivity and employee engagement.
The greatest barrier to courageous leadership is not fear — it’s how we respond to our fear. Our armour — the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that we use to protect ourselves when we aren’t willing and able to rumble with vulnerability — moves us out of alignment with our values, corrodes trust with our colleagues and teams, and prevents us from being our most courageous selves. You will learn the skills necessary for moving from armoured leadership to daring leadership. Examples include:
Moving from... ...avoiding tough conversations to straight talk and taking action. ...leading for compliance and control to cultivating commitment and shared purpose. ...a culture of echo chambers and in/out groups to cultivating a culture of belonging, inclusivity, and diverse perspectives. ...placing value on being a knower and being right to valuing being a learner and getting it right. ...perfectionism and fear of failure to modeling and encouraging striving for excellence, empathy, and self-compassion.
“We need braver leaders and more courageous cultures.” ~Dr. Brené Brown
True leadership isn’t about power over people; it is about power with people. Nor is leadership about titles or the corner office. It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage. The world is desperate for braver leaders. It’s time for all of us to step up, put down the armour and lean into impactful leadership practices that cultivate connection and caring for our most important resource – people.
What does this look like in action? It means:
• Acting with power and purpose, rather than acting bogged down by mindless activity.
• Moving from simply interacting to relating by caring about others.
• Focusing on the success of the team and department.
• Looking for opportunities to solve problems and create value.
• Drawing on the power of shared values.
Our 4-Day Program Objectives:
This is an investment in you and your leadership. After completing this training, you will be equipped to bring back these courage building tools to your teams. Courageous leaders create brave, trusting, engaged cultures.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
“I had the privilege of taking the Daring Greatly course facilitated by the talented, authentic, and engaging Patricia Auchnie.
This course was a most influential catalyst in igniting my leadership transformation. I learned that empowerment shows up as “owning our story and loving ourselves and that this process is the bravest thing that we will ever do.”
In entering the Daring Way arena, I learned how to show up with courage, be seen and how to live with brave authenticity by embracing my vulnerability.
This course was immeasurably life changing in a professional capacity AND it was especially powerful on the personal- Learning to understand the elements of trust needed toward myself and with others has placed me on a trajectory I could not have imagined.
Gift yourself this honour. It will change your life in unimaginable ways.
Key team members of our organization recently embarked in a Dare to Lead program with Janna as part of an ongoing commitment to creating a culture of communication and leadership. We quickly realized that Janna possesses many amazing gifts and that our time with her would be productive and learnings from our journey applicable to every area of our life. Not only is Janna a fantastic facilitator and listener, her approach during the Dare to Lead workshop was extremely engaging and authentic. Learning to build a culture of courage, taking off the armour and learning to have tough conversation is not for the faint of heart. For me, I am very grateful for Janna’s insights, guidance and thoughtful conversation throughout the Dare to Lead process. My journey from armoured leadership to daring leadership was eye opening and I do feel that I am a better leader and person because of these teachings and my time spent with Janna.
“Courage starts with showing up and letting ourselves be seen” Brené Brown” ~
“I recently participated in the Dare to Lead program facilitated by Janna. I signed up for the program as I’d moved into a senior role at our firm and I wanted to develop my professional leadership skills further; it ended up having a profound impact in all areas of my life.
The self-awareness I have gained throughout the process, as well as the set of tools and techniques to practice in all aspects of my personal and professional relationships, will surely be takeaways that will not only benefit me, but countless others.
It was a powerful experience being surrounded by a diverse group of leaders, there to explore both our vulnerabilities and our strengths together. The facilitators were able to create a safe and open space for all of us attending. They made the material relatable and guided us in a way that continues to inspire me to lead and live bravely.”
