Do you dare to lead? The Winona State University-Rochester Campus Activity Board is hosting a free Dare to Lead™ virtual workshop series for students, designed to provide an introductory experience to the skills, practices, and tools that underpin daring leadership.

These workshops will be facilitated by Bethany von Steinbergs, Founder of Flourish Consulting and a Dare to Lead™ Trained Facilitator. Each session will be based on one of the four skill sets of courageous leadership, as outlined in Brené Brown’s best-selling book, Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts.

Students participating in the workshops will get the opportunity to reflect, discuss, and practice these concepts through education, conversation, and action plans.

WSU students must register for each individual workshop they plan to attend. Please follow the registration links for each session below.

These workshops are reserved for students enrolled at Winona State University.

Students do not need to attend all four sessions, though it is recommended to gain the most valuable experience.
