  • Leadership & Development - The Power of Daring Leadership: Shift Your Perspective to Boost Your Courage

    DATE:  11/10/2020

    TIME:  9:00 am PST / 12:00pm EST / 5:00 pm GMT

    PRESENTER:  Barb Van Hare, Dare to Lead™ Certified Facilitator

    Think about your work, relationships, and life… have you ever felt stress, disappointment, self-doubt, or frustration? Of course, you have; we all have those experiences. The impact of these feelings over the long term starts to affect how you handle work, relationship, and life challenges. The more negativity we feel, the more armored up we become which makes us less creative, resilient, confident, and effective.

    Learn how to put yourself in the driver’s seat and shift from Armored to Daring Leadership. When you change your perspective, it allows you to tap into new creative energy that helps you navigate in a more positive and productive direction. It transforms the way you think about your work, your relationships and your life. As you expand your courage, there are so many more options available. You get to choose what perspective you want to be in versus just reacting from an old Armored mindset. Choosing a new perspective provides a boost to your Daring Leadership and allows you to embrace your full potential.

    Through this webinar, you will:

  • Recognize the symptoms and impact of our negative reactions to stress
  • Personalize your opportunity to benefit from positive responses to stress
  • Experience and apply the perspective shift process
  • Understand the requirements to embrace and sustain a transformative shift
