Learning at its Best

"I have studied leadership and worked in leadership and culture development for the past 20+ years. I’ve read the books, I’ve done the courses, and I can honestly say that nothing has changed me and my style more than when I first did Dare to Lead™ with Brené. The work is deep and when taken into your bones and applied in practice is truly life changing for you and the people you work with."

About SynergyIQ

Dare to Lead

In the balmy city of San Antonio Texas early 2019, Michelle Holland became a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator live and in person with Dr Brené Brown. Adding to her research of the last 20 years, Brené studied how to apply her unique personal development formula into workplace. She discovered a method of helping leaders to become courageous. This is a leadership from the inside out program, it’s not like any leadership program you’ve attended before, and you will walk away changed or on the journey towards change. Prepare to learn the skills of DARING leaders, those that truly step in and lean in to leadership, and uncover the barriers you are carrying that stop you from being full self-actualised and courageous.
