The Daring Greatly Leadership Manifesto by Dr Brené Brown

In the book Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead by Dr Brené Brown, Brené refers to the Daring Greatly Leadership Manifesto.

The manifesto came about after many interviews Brené had done and links to the questions – “What do we want people to know about us and what do we need from them?”

 

The Daring Greatly Leadership Manifesto by Dr Brené Brown

“To the CEO’s and teachers. To the principals and the managers. To the politicians, community leaders and decision-makers:

We want to show up, we want to learn, and we want to inspire.

We are hardwired for connection, curiosity and engagement.

We crave purpose, and we have a deep desire to create and contribute.

We want to take risks, embrace our vulnerabilities, and be courageous.

When learning and working are dehumanized, when you no longer see us and no longer encourage our daring, or when you only see what we produce or how we perform – we disengage and turn away from the very things the world needs from us: our talent, our ideas, and our passion.

What we ask is that you engage with us, show up beside us, and learn from us.

Feedback is a function of respect: when you don’t have honest conversations with us about our strengths and our opportunities for growth, we question our contributions and your commitment.

Above all else, we ask you to show up, let yourself be seen, and be courageous. Dare Greatly with us” (p.211).
