According to the research in Dr. Brene Brown's current best seller, Dare to Lead, the top behavior that leaders identified as getting in the way of courageous leadership is the avoidance of tough conversations, including giving honest productive feedback. As any leader can attest, these types of conversations require a high level of courage and vulnerability for both the person giving the feedback and those receiving it.

This session will explore vulnerability, dispel the myths surrounding vulnerability and how vulnerability leads to courageous leadership. Concluding the session will be guidelines on how to give and receive feedback in a way that moves people and processes forward.
