Dare To Lead Program™ for Teams & Organisations.
I am a facilitator, who trains organisations and individuals in values-based leadership.
I understand that effective and sustainable leadership now involves individuals being able to lead as themselves, while also meeting the needs of their organisation.
I bring to my facilitation, a powerful focus on individuals in the room, using my training and experience as an ICF-credentialed, personal and executive coach.
As a facilitator, I work in the gap between where a team is now and where it wants to go.
My experience and intuitive style allow me to engage with people in a way that opens the potential in the room and deepens the conversation. My style of facilitation is transformational, not transactional, which creates lasting change. Adverse to top tips and quick fixes, I have a bold and powerful style. I am direct, yet compassionate. A client once described me as ‘the sword of kindness’.
I am passionate about working with organisations who pay more than lip service to the professional and personal development of their leaders and other staff.
Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.
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 organisations move from armoured leadership to daring leadership.
“At The Hunger Project we value ongoing learning and growth immensely. We had had a tough year, and the way Kemi created a safe space for us to talk about our challenges really allowed us to more deeply understand ourselves and each other, and to be open and reconnect with one another like never before. She also brought moments of laughter and fun so we really enjoyed the development process which can be confronting and frustrating at times Since completing the program, my team and I have been able to have clear and kind conversations with one another and to be more organised and efficient in a way that honours everyone's time. This has lifted our mutual respect and cooperation to a whole new level, and enabled us to focus on the things that really matter to us- like our mission to end hunger. I am personally grateful to Kemi for enabling us to create a new team relationship through participating in the Dare To Lead program under her facilitation."
