Tackling The Conversations and Challenges HR/OD People ****

How often as a HR professional do you need to show up and be brave when you know the outcome will be tough, and you can’t control what happens?
Probably… every. single. day.
I’ve worked in HR, Leadership, Culture and Change for almost 20 years, and I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t have to pull courage from the deepest parts of me, to walk into a room and have a conversation about tough stuff.
I will never forget the day when I had to sit with a manager as she terminated the employment of a women with cancer. I know it was only through courage, vulnerability and empathy that I managed my way to the end of that meeting, and saw through the process and legal requirements, to the people who were impacted.
As a HR professional you need to be tough, you need to be brave, you need to be strong, AND you also need to be compassionate and empathetic. Sometimes it can feel like an impossible balancing act. Dr Brown's research shows us how we can reach that balance and improve the way we live and work.
AND as HR practitioners we are also coaching others to be brave.... a juggling act.
“Daring leadership is ultimately about serving other people, not ourselves. That’s why we choose courage,” Brené writes in Dare to Lead. 
About the 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.
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. Her TED talk has been viewed over 40 million times.
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.
