Dare to Lead™

Next Cohort Experience Coming Soon

An empirically based courage-building program based on the most significant findings from Dr. Brené Brown’s latest research – courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. Brené has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership.

I found this to be the most valuable leadership training I’ve ever attended. It was raw and real and forced me to look at parts of myself (shame, vulnerability) that are triggering for me, but need to be looked at, and this felt like a safe space to do so.”

Dare to Lead™ Participant

4 Components of Courage:

Rumbling With Vulnerability

Nice isn’t cutting it. Lean into and stay with tough conversations and situations that feel risky. Vulnerability is the heartbeat of courage.

Living Into Our Values

Know our values and use them to shape interactions, decisions, and behaviors to reduce unintended impact and expand overall effectiveness.


Get into the nitty gritty of what Trust means, how to build it, and the collective power it has to generate fun, fast, and phenomenal outcomes.

To Rise

Resilience is critical to daring leadership. If we are going to take some risks, we are going to occasionally step in “it”. Get up, dust off, go again.


In this program participants will discover:

  • Vulnerability as the foundational skill set of courage and the birthplace of many of the behaviors that define daring leadership including creativity, accountability, and difficult conversations
  • The critical role self-awareness plays in daring leadership
  • How to show up effectively for hard conversations and giving/receiving feedback
  • The four skill sets that make up courage: rumbling with vulnerability, living into our values, BRAVING trust, and learning to rise

Meet your Facilitators

To be in a room full of daring leaders is an honor. We design and deliver all of our programs in a co-leadership model. Two leaders, two minds, two hearts, two sets of intuition guiding the growth of the individual and the collective.  With wisdom, humor and courageous authenticity, our team provides a safe space where people feel connected and inspired to do deep work.

Greg Mutch is compassionate & curious.  In 2019, he got to slap hands with Brené Brown while becoming a Certified Dare To Lead™ Facilitator and since has co-led over 250 brave + courageous leaders through the course.

Kari Bergman is an empath and word witch. She fills the room with wisdom and humor and stands with a fierce grip on the vision of a more beautiful world, for all.


Access is important, and because of our shared history, it is not equal. In response to these inequities, we prioritize offering scholarships to people who identify as Black, Indigenous, or People of Color. Rather than offering a standard scholarship rate, we work individually with participants to determine what is possible. If you are able to participate at the full rate, you are contributing to access for all.
