“We are hardwired for connection, curiosity, and engagement…”
You’re most likely familiar at least with the name, Brene Brown. Brown is a researcher, author, public speaker, professor who has spent her career focusing on courage and shame. Around here, we are big fans of her wildly popular book, Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead. We are drawn to Brown’s work because of the way she speaks to leading from a position of humility, transparency, and vulnerability.
Brown’s Daring Greatly Leadership Manifesto
A little food for thought from Brown for all of the group leaders making there way in this ongoing time of uncertainty:
We want to hear from the leaders out there! Respond in the comments and tell us what you’re doing to “dare greatly” with your group:
How do you stay engaged and keep feedback loops open in your group?
How do you demonstrate to your group your ongoing intention of leading with a servants heart?
How do you, as a leader, maintain a spirit of advocacy and mentorship?
How do you avoid command-and-control leadership or imposing your agenda on the group?
How do you encourage others to find the leader in themselves?
