Dare to Lead by Brene Brown


I finished Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts. by Brene Brown yesterday. This book is full of ideas, some counter-intuitive, on the matter of leadership. I felt like it’s not for a wide sect of the audience and only a particular kind of leaders will understand and benefit out of it. My feeling may be based on the fact that it sounded more theoretical to me at times. However, the writing is eloquent. 

The key takeaways from the book are –

  1. Courage and Vulnerability go together: vulnerability is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength
  2. Have super clear values: some examples of values are courage, freedom, justice, kindness, discipline, family, and honesty.
  3. Use BRAVING to build trust: B = Boundaries, R = Reliability, A = Accountability, V = Vaulting, I = Integrity, N = Non-Judgement, G = Generosity
