Brene Brown’s “Dare To Lead” takes several discoveries and ideals from Brown’s previous books and compiles them into a guide to be successful in business and leadership pursuits. A combination of personal stories, research from a wide variety of fields and concepts, Brown talks about having empathy, being able to rumble within difficult conversations, recognizing shame, being vulnerable, and using these concepts to become more daring leaders. “Courage over Comfort” is emphasized among a number of phrases. I thought this book was more focused and came together much better than “Braving the Wilderness” and I thought it was a very well done merging of Brown’s eloquence in naming these specific issues while making the narrative personable, funny, engaging, and constructive. I definitely see myself coming back to listen to this audiobook in the future and I’m glad that I had the chance to read it.
Overall score: 4.5/5 stars.
