BOOK CLUB - Dare to Lead

Date: February 24, 2021
Location: Online



 
 
“The capacity to learn is a gift; The ability to learn is a skill; The willingness to learn is a choice.” — Brian Herbert
 
The CPHR BC & Yukon Book Club, open to all members regardless of your level or area of practice, will be held monthly via Zoom. The books will range in topics and will be chosen as a group by the CPHR Book Club members. The purpose of this Book Club is to motivate, connect, and foster self-growth while building a stronger HR community. The Book Club is open to all members of the association and is hosted by members of the Vancouver Island Region.
 
This month's book:  Brene Brown's Dare to Lead is February's book selection.
 
Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential.

When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work.

But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start.
