The SAWCC begins the year with its 11th Annual Transformational Leadership Development Series beginning in January 2024.  This six-part series will be held as monthly in-person sessions. 

The agenda will continue to have educational training while using resources from the book created by Tom Rath, Strengthfinder; in addition, Dare to Lead™, a book based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown will be incorporated into the participant studies. 

Dare to Lead is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals. Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. 

The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skills sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable.  The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, training, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.  In these upcoming sessions, you will engage in a few of these Dare to Lead™ lessons.

This year’s expert speaker, Dr. Lizzy Perez, a certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, is honored to have been trained by Brené directly, and is thrilled to have the opportunity to share her incredible work with our Transformational Leadership Development Series. 

This program is designed to leave participants with tactical daring skills they can put into day-to-day use immediately.  If any of these characteristics of this workshop ring true for you and you want to increase your courage-building skills, APPLY TODAY!
