#15 Dare to Lead by Brené Brown

This book is all about how to lead through being able to have the “tough conversations” that so many women shy away from. If you are “assertive” or “confrontational” as a woman you can be labeled and this book proposes a system in which to work through tough conversations with the outcome of understanding and increased respect for each other. Brene acknowledges the tendency of women to derive their self-esteem from how much we work, do and endure for the sake of others. I have watch to many women continue to sacrifice themselves for the sake of others only to end up depleted, depressed and tired. It is time to change the culture, meaning and role of leadership in the county. We as women must Dare to Lead.
