Dare to Lead™

CVNL is proud to present Dare to Lead training, provided by Certified Instructor Ana Estrada Daniels. This training is based on Dr. Brene’ Brown’s seminal work and latest book, where she masterfully applies her research to the art of leading people.

According to Dr. Brene’ Brown, researcher and the author of the best-selling book Dare to Lead – Brave Work, Tough Conversations, Whole Hearts, “Leadership is not 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.”

Now more than ever, the nonprofit sector needs brave, courageous leaders to help weather the health crisis and rebuild. When we lead with whole-heartedness and vulnerability, we build trust, compassion and empathy, and with that lasting, meaningful relationships with those we work with, love and serve.

This intensive nationally-recognized and certified training is a transformative leadership experience. Are you ready to take a deep dive into your leadership development? This is a great place to start or continue your journey.
