“Brave Leadership delivers on its title with tools you can use to be more courageous, more You in your business and personal life.
There has never been a better time to be brave. ”

Do you struggle with feeling confident?

Welcome to being human! In a world that’s moving at the speed of light, where we’re inundated with messages of who and what we should be, it’s incredibly difficult to feel like you know what you’re doing and not compare yourself with everyone else’s photoshopped highlight reel.

We believe that confidence comes from knowing you can count on yourself. That’s why everything we do is about equipping you with the tools to not only deliver results for your organization, but consistently experience yourself taking powerful constructive action that is in alignment with your best self. So then, you ratchet up your confidence in every situation you face.

Brave Leadership has helped thousands of leaders all over the world feel more confident, courageous, satisfied, and purposeful.

Is it sometimes hard for you to advocate for yourself and your ideas?

We give you the tools to influence others, both up and down the ladder.

It can be hard to take a stand for yourself and for your ideas, especially when the stakes feel high. We equip you with the tools to authentically influence those around you, so you can get your voice heard and put your ideas in motion.

We have worked with some of the world’s most reputable organizations, including:

Are you frustrated with having to lead and wanting to lead but not knowing what to do to lead well?

The world has dramatically shifted in the past decade. The leadership strategies of yesterday no longer work today.

It’s hard to find good role models at the precipice of a new era. That’s why our work is more critical now than ever. Today’s emerging leaders are responsible for leading us into tomorrow and we provide the strategies to set you up for success.

Do you feel like you need permission to be yourself, especially at work?

We believe that your greatest power lies in leveraging your true self.

So often we feel like we need to change who we are to fit in or be successful. But what we know to be true is that leveraging your best, most authentic, most constructive, and responsible self, is your greatest super-power. That’s why we help you, not only tap into that well of strength, but to activate it in every situation you face for better results.

We help leaders unleash their most confident, authentic and powerful selves to get the results they need.

Do you sometimes feel lost in your career and can’t remember why you’re doing what you’re doing?

You’re running in a million different directions, putting out fires all day, often sacrificing your own well-being to meet your goals, that it’s no wonder you can’t remember what it’s all for…

This is our greatest gift. The work we get to do here at Brave Leadership University connects you back to your core purpose—your reason why—and we help you activate that in every situation you face. So, you not only remember why you’re doing what it is you’re doing, but you remember who you are.

Brave Leadership offers practical tools you can use to set the direction of your career.

Do you hate having those uncomfortable conversations or dealing with conflict?

It’s normal to feel anxious, or worried, or overwhelmed, or afraid, or stressed, or uncertain. That’s what it means to be human. But we don’t have to let those feelings stop us.

You don’t have to feel brave to be brave. Brave doesn’t live in our experience of ourselves, it lives in our actions.

At Brave Leadership University, we’re committed to helping you take brave action in the face of your own humanity.

To do the uncomfortable. To overcome the scary. To own your power.

We provide virtual learning experiences that equip you with the skills to deal with difficult conversations.
