Creativity, innovation and change are traits most organisations strive to achieve. However, most of these organisations struggle with this because their people do not feel safe to express their ideas or step proactively into new challenges. In most cases, people do not seem to have the courage to be who they truly are and bring their uniqueness with them to work for fear of disconnection, judgement or criticism.
Sharing their ideas and showing who they really are can be synonyms of risk, uncertainty and emotional exposure; which can be seen as a dangerous and vulnerable place. This not only prevents them from becoming the best version of themselves but it also limits creativity, innovation and change. However, according to Dr. Brené Brown, “Vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, innovation and change”.
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was developed to help participants learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing a courage practice that transforms the way they work and lead.
During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that hold people back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more courageous and authentic living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way participants live and lead.

“We need to have honest conversations about what it takes to bring our best, most authentic selves to work and how to effectively encourage our colleagues to do the same. We need to understand the human side of cultivating an organizational culture where people feel inspired and supported. These conversations may sound risky and vulnerable, but risk and vulnerability are essential to courageous leadership”
