Author Brené Brown explores how vulnerability, courage, shame, and fear influence our choices and patterns of behavior. If we can be courageous enough to be vulnerable, and understand what that really means, then we can have experiences that bring true meaning and purpose to our lives. Daring Greatly explains the meaning and value of showing up and being seen even, and perhaps especially, when it feels scary, intimidating, and potentially hurtful.

The book is available through amazon.com and often at local book stores.

Athenian Dialogues are educational events that allow clerks to explore leadership theory, practice, and principles. In the context of Daring Greatly, participants will discuss the book’s themes and key ideas, and apply that information to their role as a leader in their community and municipal organization. Join us to further cultivate your leadership skills and connect with fellow clerks.

The facilitator for this Athenian Dialogue is Ashley Kent, associate specialist with the Local Government Center at Montana State University Extension.
