Brené is also the founder and CEO of The Daring Way, a teaching and certification program for helping professionals who want to facilitate her work. The work focuses on courage building, shame resilience, and uncovering the power of vulnerability. Brené is the Author of five #1 NYT Bestsellers: 'The Gifts of Imperfection', 'Daring Greatly', 'Rising Strong', 'Braving the Wilderness', and her latest book, 'Dare to Lead', which is the culmination of a seven-year study on courage and leadership.

Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable or to dare greatly. Based on her vast experience of pioneering research, Dr. Brené Brown dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and argues that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage.
