Brené is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and most recently completed a seven-year study on courageous leadership.
She is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and Dare to Lead. The most significant finding from Brené’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable.
The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings and coaching to help individuals, teams and organizations move from armoured leadership to daring leadership.
The Dare to Lead program is highly interactive, including individual and team facilitation and coaching.

Her experience and intuitive style allow her to engage with people in a way that opens the potential in the room and deepens the conversation. Her style of facilitation is transformational, not transactional, which creates lasting change. Adverse to ‘top tips’ and quick fixes, Kemi has a bold and powerful style. She is direct, yet compassionate. A client described her as ‘the sword of kindness’.
She is passionate about working with organisations who pay more than lip service to the professional and personal development of their leaders and other staff.
