Chances are you may be familiar with author Brené Brown.
Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers:
and her latest book, Dare to Lead.
Brené's TED talk - The Power of Vulnerability - is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world with over 35 million views. She is also the first researcher to have a filmed talk on Netflix. The Call to Courage special debuted on the streaming service on April 19, 2019.
I have read every one of these books and I have also participated and completed her Daring Educator program. As an educator I want to take a minute you give a little shout out share that the program is now being offered for free.
Dare to Lead #daringclassrooms, a free companion program to Dare to Lead, developed specifically for K-12 (primary and secondary school) educators who are committed to courage-building in and outside the classroom.
