"From Awkward to Awesome: Embracing Emotions for Effective Leadership" 

Lisa Brouwer 

Courage Coach & Certified Dare to Lead Facilitator

Key Takeaways: 

  • We’ve all heard that emotions don’t belong in the workplace. They’re too messy, too awkward, too unpredictable, and apparently, they get in the way of making decisions.
  • But hold on... what if talking about emotions is the secret sauce to unlocking our full potential at work? What if we could borrow a concept from coaching and therapy to get better at problem-solving, giving feedback, dealing with conflict, and managing unproductive behavior?
  • You’ll walk away with a strategy (and a budding skill set) of how to uncover thoughts and emotions, increasing your confidence to move from awkward to awesome.
  • This daring leadership practice will equip you to lead from a place of care, connection, and courage. Implementing it won’t just positively transform how you work with your clients and team members – it'll change relationships in your personal life too.

You are in for a treat! Lisa Brouwer is a speaker, Courage Coach, and Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator under the teaching of Brené Brown. Through public workshops, corporate development programs, women’s retreats, and one-on-one coaching, she guides people to live at the intersection of daring leadership and courageous living.
