This is your time to choose courage over comfort

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage building program.

The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable.

The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage building skills through workshops, trainings, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 24-hour Dare to Lead™ program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put the Dare to Lead Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.

This Dare to Lead™ experience will be broken into four (4) components:

A few weeks before we start your Dare to Lead™ adventure, you’ll be sent a welcome email with all the info you need to know about the training, including Pre-Work (2 hrs). The Pre-Work is designed to ensure everyone is on a level playing field leading into the actual Dare to Lead™ Training, and to ensure we get the most value out of our time together. The Pre-Work is not onerous, and includes reading, watching & listening to Brené Brown content as well as some personal reflection.

We’ll first come together virtually for the Welcome & Induction Webinar (4 hours) where we’ll move through the following:

  • Welcome Circle
  • Meet & Greets
  • Container Building
  • BBEARG Belonging Statement
  • Set the scene for learning
  • Background to the research
  • Get to know your Breakout Group
  • Introduction to the Heart of Daring Leadership

Another 2-3 weeks on, we’ll come together either virtually or in person for the heavy lifting of the Dare to Lead™ Training (16 hours). Over the 2 days (or 3 if you’re doing the Immersive experience) we’ll explore:

  • Armoured VS Daring Leadership
  • Answering your Call to Courage
  • Arenas
  • Grounded Confidence & Rumbling Skills
  • Emotional Literacy
  • Four (4) Courage Skill sets
    • Skill set #1: Rumbling with Vulnerability
      • Shame – Defining & Understanding Shame; Shame Shields; How Shame Shows up in Organisations
      • Empathy
    1. Skill set #2: Living into our Values
      • Living BIG
      • Giving and Receiving Feedback
    2. Skill set #3: BRAVING Trust
      • Framework & application

2-3 weeks after the 2 days of Dare to Lead™, we’ll come together for the final time for the Integration & Wrap Up Webinar (4 hours) where we will explore:

  • Skill set #4: Learning to Rise
    • Rising Strong Process
    • Rumbling with Anxiety, Grief & Forgiveness
  • Your Dare to Lead™ Integration Plan
  • Personal Reflection & Celebration

Imagine experiencing the profound learnings of Dare to Lead™ in a three (3) day Odyssey of wilderness, wellness and wonder – oh the ‘aha’ moments and feeling of calm and resortation that lay ahead of you!

Welcome to our Immersive Dare to Lead™ Training – a retreat for your mind, body and soul. A sacred space for you to immerse yourself in the Dare to Lead™ curriculum as well as ice baths, saunas, nature’s wonders, breathwork and meditations. An opportunity to be apart of a community of likeminded leaders, seeking a third space to re-energise, re-connect and rejuvinate, so they can be the best possibe version of themselves not just at work, but also in life. A space to honour and nourish your body with organic and delicious food.

Ali Lalieu (content guru & Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator), Adele Harvey (wilderness warrior & owner of Noosa Raw) and Dave Lalieu (Certified Breathwork Facilitator & owner of Banyula Zen) have joined forces to design and bring a one-of-a-kind, truly life changing leadership experience to life for leaders who are yearing for something totally new and exciting:

  • Experiential Mastery of Brené Brown’s Wisdom: Immerse yourself in Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead™ content through hands-on experiences; engage in dynamic sessions that seamlessly blend theory with the awe-inspiring backdrop of nature, fostering a profound and transformative learning journey.
  • Adventure Beckons in Nature’s Theater: Picture yourself navigating the stunning landscapes—scaling ocean cliffs during a sunset hike, exploring waterfalls and natural pools immersed in rainforest, and discovering the enchanting sparkling blue ocean rock pools in Noosa National Park. Nature becomes the canvas upon which your leadership story unfolds.
  • Wellness Rituals at Banyula Zen: Your well-being takes center stage with daily rituals at Banyula Zen – ice baths, sauna sessions, yoga, and breathwork practices await, creating a sanctuary for self-discovery and rejuvenation.
  • Organic Nourishment for Mind and Body: Savor carefully crafted organic meals—breakfast, lunch, and delightful morning & afternoon teas—purposefully designed to fuel your body and mind throughout this transformative journey.
  • Personalized Experiences for Profound Impact: Indulge in private massages and infrared sauna sessions on Day 3 – these moments of reflection and relaxation provide a powerful space to integrate newfound knowledge into your leadership persona.
