What past participants have to say

"The Dare to Lead workshop led by Leslie Mizerak was incredible. It was invaluable to take a step back and evaluate how I am seen and how I want to be seen. This workshop could not have come at a more pivotal time in my career - as I prep for a changing role and in ever-changing workplace. I still have work to do, and I can’t wait to persevere."

"I loved this workshop. The conversations were amazing and authentic no silly role-playing! I struggle with giving feedback and difficult conversations so my huge a-ha moment is …‘Clear is KIND, Unclear is UNKIND.’"

I highly recommend it! The Dare to Lead program provides an in-depth look of Dr. Brown’s work. It gave me perspective to look at how I not only lead myself but also how I lead others. The small group experience made the dialogue was thoughtful and sometimes raw; the cohort members shared so much of themselves both their experiences and their support of each other. I laughed, I cried, I loved it!!"
