(Dare to Leadprogram and meaning-oriented workshops)

The Dare to Lead™ program is based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown.


Other workshops are based on the meaning-oriented framework of Logotherapy, with additional focus on the specific area of interest. All workshops have a theoretical and experiential component, with practical exercises, time for reflection, and include some form of guided relaxation.


These workshops can be tailor made, so please make contact to discuss your needs.

​Well on Your Way


Dare to Lead program 

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. 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 armored leadership to daring leadership.

Individuals who successfully complete the full Dare to Lead™ program will receive a certificate of completion and are allowed to put a Dare to Lead™ Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.

Joy on the Job: Finding Meaning in Work:

​A large part of our time is spent working, and work can be deeply meaningful and fulfilling. Sadly, for many, work has lost its meaning. This may account for some of the aggressive and addictive behaviour we see (or engage in), and for some of the depression so prevalent in our society.

Based on the principles of Logotherapy and other modalities, this workshop explores how we can reconnect with our work in a meaningful way. This workshop is an experiential and practical application of a concept (meaning) innate to humankind.

Much of what will be covered can be applied not only to work but to other areas of life.

Offered as:

2 hours for the basic content.

Can be extended by 1 – 2 hours with additional topics like teaching the relaxation response, or offering a group yoga nidra session.
