Please join us as we read and discuss the book: Dare to Lead by Brene’ Brown. It’s about brave
work, tough conversations, recognizing the potential in people, and having the courage to
develop that potential! Brene’ shares decades of research in a practical and insightful guide to
courageous leadership. “This book is a road map for anyone who wants to lead mindfully, live
bravely, and dare to lead.”
Participants will read sections of the book in advance and come together on four separate virtual
occasions to have conversations and share ideas. It is exciting to have two practicing
administrators leading and facilitating the conversations!
