Dare To Lead. Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. By Brené Brown.

This book will open the cracks in your armour and face you to look a bit deeper inside. This book dives right into our vulnerability, egos, self-awareness, and self-love. Brené Brown does a fabulous job demonstrating how courage is crucial in leadership and how we need to commit to courageous behaviours to be daring leaders. She explores how shame impacts our behaviours, self-esteem, and our relationships. And after cracking open our armour for self-reflection and learning, she provides us with leadership lessons that will help us build back better than before.

 

Key leadership lessons:

 

  1. Know that it is not possible to view the world through someone else’s eyes. Instead, we can honour their perspective as truth, even when they differ from our truth.
  2. To recognize our judgement of others as a possible judgement of ourselves.
  3. Before we can understand the feelings of others, we must first understand our own.
  4. We need to be aware that who we are and how we show up each day is how we lead, and we know this has an impact on everyone around us.
  5. We show strength and courage when we choose integrity over comfort. Tough and honest conversations are critical to develop and maintain healthy relationships.
