About the Summary

In her note introducing Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts, Brené Brown quotes Theodore Roosevelt as saying, “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again…who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” These words form the basis for much of what Brown discusses in her book, a book in which she aims to help leaders lead more effectively, more honestly, and in a more healthy manner. Much of her book is aimed at leaders of organizations, but the information and insights can be generalized to all people who lead in any capacity, in the home, in the workplace, or in nonprofits or volunteer organizations.
