Teaching Leaders How to Effectively Manage Themselves and Help Others Through Vulnerability

At Integration Solutions, Inc., we believe that everything rises and falls on leadership. For this reason, we give close attention to professionals who are at the management level of human service organizations.

Human Service Leaders experience mental and emotional pressure almost every day. This is because they carry huge responsibilities, and their actions will definitely affect the entire organization. Despite being at the top of the management level, leaders skills to advance their organizations into the future.

Yet what are the top skills? 

The Dare To Lead™ Program

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.

Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership. She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead, which also debuted at #1 on The Wall Street Journal and Publisher’s Weekly list.

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. Certified Dare to Lead Facilitators focus on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Certified Dare to Lead Facilitators (CDTLF) can also prepare participants to become Dare to Lead Trained. Upon successful completion of the training participants will receive a certificate recognizing their completion of the 16 hour curriculum and their deeper understanding of the four skill sets of courage in leadership.
