Leadership is not about titles or the corner office.

It’s about the willingness to step up, put yourself out there, and lean into courage.

The world is desperate for braver leaders.

It’s time for all of us to step up.


The world is thirsty for Daring Leadership.

Leadership which chooses what is right, over what is fast easy or fun.

Leadership which chooses courage over comfort.

When leadership chooses comfort:

People avoid tough conversations

We spend and unreasonable amount of time managing problematic behaviours

Trust is corroded

People don't take smart risks

We get stuck in setback and defined by failure

There is too much shame and blame People opt out of conversations about diversity

We rush to fix problems, rather than find solutions

Our values are aspirational rather than measurable and teachable

Perfectionism and fear keep people from growing and learning

Choose courage, Dare to Lead. 


Dare to Lead is a collection of four skill sets that are 100% teachable.

About me...

Why I choose courage. 

I choose courage;

because life is too short not to

because I want my children to

because I want women to

because I want men to

I choose courage because;

I know the cost of comfort, of never enough, of "who do you think you are".

I choose courage because; 

courage is contagious and I want you to choose courage too. 

" It's your turn, it's always your turn"
