March Book Group: Dare to Lead by Brené Brown

Our March Book Group features Brené Brown's Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. As a member of the Mid-Hudson Leadership Initiative, you are invited to come together with other leaders and future leaders in our region to explore the power of empathy, connection, and courage in  leadership. 

"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." ~ Brené Brown

Register by January 31st to secure your space and a complementary copy of the book.

As copies of the book are limited, participants are asked to commit to attending both sessions.

Sessions Available
Wednesday, March 16th | 6:30pm - 8:00pm
Wednesday, March 30th | 6:30pm - 8:00pm
