A Dare to Lead + BetterUp Partnership

Over the past five years, Certified Dare to Lead Facilitators have taken over 120,000 people across 45 countries through our Dare to Lead program. Our evaluation data are clear — this courage-building work has a tremendous impact on individuals, teams, and organizations. 

Like all leaders, I’ve been working to understand how to meet this once-in-a-lifetime moment of sweeping global change. I started searching for a partner who shares our values and is bravely innovating at the intersection of technology and human transformation. I stopped looking when I found BetterUp. 

Today, we are announcing a partnership with BetterUp to launch the Daring Leadership Institute, a first-of-its-kind integration that brings our empirically based, courage-building curriculum together with BetterUp’s human transformation platform. I’m so proud to chair the new institute and join their science board.

As new technologies, chronic uncertainty, and ever-shifting markets continue to reshape industries and redefine the future of work, we need to develop skill sets, mindsets, toolsets, and systems that support feedback cultures, reward critical and anticipatory thinking, and foster deep collaboration and inclusivity. 

Additionally, we need to embrace new and uncomfortable ways of working that will feel paradoxical in many ways — like learning how to be both very focused and very agile, how to move with urgency and thoughtfulness, how to lead by excavating the unsaid rather than expending energy working around it. Our new collaboration will allow us to bring these skill and mindset transformations to organizations in measurable and meaningful ways. It’s a game-changer!

Since meeting Eddie Medina and Alexi Robichaux a couple of years ago, I’ve had the privilege of getting to know BetterUp and the larger team, and I’ve been blown away. I’m proud that the Daring Leadership Institute at BetterUp is where we’re going to develop and deliver all of my leadership work. I believe with my whole heart that, together, we can develop braver leaders and more courageous cultures around the world. Let’s go!
