“Our session with Brené was overwhelmingly positive and our leaders commented on what a great experience it was. Our survey results indicated she received the best ratings for external speakers that we’ve had in the last two years. Her content is applicable to our professional and personal lives, men and women alike. Her message about vulnerability is re-shaping our conversation about what it means to be a good leader- we were surprised by how engaged and excited our team was about the message!”
“A unique experience for hard-charged senior executives- one which allowed the team to look at leadership from a very different, very personal perspective. The concept of Daring Greatly, combined with wholehearted and being vulnerable opened up their willingness to step out of their comfort zone and change how they will lead in a high growth company”
“Today’s global economy is forcing businesses to increase productivity and efficiency while reorganising to reflect the global landscape. Brené’s research on connection, empathy and vulnerability in the workplace helped us better understand how the emotional consequences of change play out in the workplace, and how to more effectively engage with one another. She delivers a critically important message that is supported by original research and does so in an engaging and intelligent way. Leaders at all levels of the organisation come away with a new framework for looking at these issues and making an effective change to how they lead”
