Monthly Chapter Meeting

Topic: Driving Organizational Culture Change through Brave Leadership




Pearl Alexander            &            Cheryl D. Cofield

In this highly interactive session, participants will preview a revolutionary new leadership style based on Dr. Brene Brown’s internationally acclaimed Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ curricula.  Participants will:

  • learn to integrate authenticity, self-compassion, trust and empathy to practice “Brave Leadership” in the face of change, challenge, political turmoil, risk and uncertainty
  • explore how personal stories, beliefs, and existing scripts create environments of disengagement, fear and scarcity
  • examine the impact of “scarcity culture” on individual careers and organizational success
  • increase their competency to develop leaders, strengthen workforce resilience, and create environments that foster belonging, inclusiveness, and engagement
