Dare to Lead: Drop the Armor

Dare to Lead™ program is based on Dr. Brené Brown's research on courage, vulnerability and cultivating shame resilience

After working with corporate leaders for 33 years and 8 years studying Brené Brown’s research on shame, courage and vulnerability, one thing is true. We all self-protect (with what we’ll call ‘armor’) when we are uncomfortable. Armor is the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that we use to protect ourselves when we aren’t willing to lean into vulnerability. It moves us out of alignment with our values, corrodes trust with our colleagues and teams, and prevents us from being our most courageous selves.

Metaphorically, armor is heavy, bulky, and it gets in the way. With it on, we can’t see each other for who we really are. If we want to connect, we need to remove it. While it can be daunting, Sandy teaches us that it's worth it in three simple, but not easy, steps that will truly shift cultures:

  1. Gain awareness of what armor is and how it holds you back
  2. Take responsibility for your armor and your impact
  3. Learn courage-building skills to help you be a braver leader
“Sandy’s workshop is a gift you will give yourself and I encourage anyone who wants to live a more courageous and authentic life to attend her retreat. Brené Brown’s work will put you on a journey to living a “wholehearted” life. Sandy Mitsch is the bow on the gift. Sandy is a compassionate, inspiring, knowledgeable and humorous facilitator. You will love her and the experience!"
