About the Event
For our alumni, we are launching our Lifelong Leadership group by reading Dare to Lead: Brave Work, Tough Conversations, Whole Hearts, by Brene Brown! This book is a favorite of several of our Partners so it was a no-brainer to start off our Lifelong Leadership group with it. Read the book over the next month. We will discuss the book November 16th and then will pick out more specific topics for our November 30 and December 7 sessions. Join us for as many sessions as you like. We have books to borrow, just email Karen@TahoeTruckeeLeadership.com.
About the book: Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential. When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work. But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.
