What people say about the Dare to Lead™ program?
The Dare to Lead program not only changed the way that I work and interact with my team, but also how I conduct myself in my personal life: leaning into my values, setting and enforcing boundaries, and ensuring I’m not listening to those in the cheap seats of my arena. I am a braver, kinder, more courageous leaders, mum, partner and human having participated in this program.
The team at The Leadership Sphere delivered a high quality offering with their Dare to Lead program. Skilled and experienced facilitators made the program a pleasure to participate in and the content kept me both engaged and challenged. If you’re looking for a leadership development program this is the one to go on the top of your list.
The program provides such in-depth consideration of Brene Brown’s work. It gave perspective to the content but also drives you to continue to consider other ways and concepts that you may not have considered before. The group size means that you have the opportunity to share and learn from others whilst also being able to work independently on the areas you want to. Highly recommend it!
Phillip Ralph and the team at The Leadership Sphere run some of the best leadership development programs here in Australia and the recent Dare to Lead program was one of the best programs I have been a part of. Well structured, excellent content, and an amazing group of people on the program. Over the eight weeks of this virtual program I have transformed some key areas of my life and integrated new approaches to leadership at work and at home. A huge shout out to Phil and the team for running such high quality leadership programs and for having such a profound impact on those who were involved. I highly recommend the Dare to Lead program to individuals and groups who want to transform the workplace culture and have a passion for building high trust organisations!
I feel both grateful and privileged to have participated in this program with Phillip Ralph and team at The leadership Sphere. Phil has a wonderful balance of integrity, sensitivity and vulnerability, mixed with an authentic ability to challenge and illuminate learning and perspective. The Dare to Lead program was a wonderful validation of several beliefs and tools that I already hold and use, as well as a deep and life changing exploration and unravelling of the stories we sometimes tell ourselves. Brene Brown’s insights, tools and exercises are something that I am using daily, and will serve my coaching and facilitation clients well by shining a spotlight on what can sometimes be muddy waters. Thank you Phil and the team!
I loved the way Brene’s research is embedded into a very engaging program, that challenged me/us to put this work into practice and successfully build new habits. Phil and the team expertly facilitated the experience, which led to insightful conversations with everyone in the group. Thanks to you all!
A perfectly practical program for anyone doing any role at any time. Not just for work but in life – ideal for maintaining, rebuilding and strengthening real relationships with people who matter.
I found the Dare to Lead training incredibly valuable. The program is thought provoking and challenging at times in ways that encourages awareness and growth on different levels, and from this explores how we as individuals can build courage and then lead from it. The facilitators guided us through the material with compassion, understanding and insight and confirmed that we can never stop learning about ourselves and how we interact with the world. The group created a safe environment to explore issues of trust and courage and to unpack the stories we tell ourselves which keep us stuck or small. It was a wonderful and valuable experience that I highly recommend.
Dare to Lead! What a fantastic program! Initially scheduled as a face-to-face program, the coronavirus created a shift to online learning. I was surprised to find myself enjoying the virtual workshop far more than I had expected. The innovative approach and use of multiple online tools created a learning experience that was second to none. We built strong connections over the 8 weeks and I didn’t want the course to end! The content was excellent, as you would expect from Brené Brown, and it was brought to life by Philip Ralph’s superb facilitation, along with the talented team from The Leadership Sphere.
The ‘Dare to Lead’ programme provided an excellent journey into both the personal and professional self. At times deep and provocative in ways that I was not expecting. After many years of personal reflection and exploration I was awakened with new and deeper understanding of what makes me tick and how I might grow as a human and in a professional capacity. Expertly facilitated with a wonderful balance of material delivery, video coverage from Brene Brown and many supportive and at times challenging sub group discussions. The mix of people on the Course provided many broad and previously unexplored perspectives. Thank you so much for the experience.
I was impressed with how effortless Phil managed to get us connecting online, using different technology, delving deeply into the material. It was a wonderful exploration of vulnerability in its most courageous form. The 8 modules were split over 8 impactful weeks with follow up actions, using Actionable as a reinforcer with accountability buddies. Phil and his wonderful team of facilitators brought different styles and kept people engaged with powerful key messages, inspiring learning and video clips featuring Brené Brown. He helped us integrate the material and explore it more fully while challenging our thinking. I loved Phil’s personal disclosure and ability to be courageous and vulnerable at the same time – which brought the material to life. He brings his authentic style and supportive approach to encourage participants to explore the material and key messages.
