If it is not about titles, salary-level, or status, then what is leadership? According to Dr. Brené Brown, it is taking responsibility to recognize the potential in others and developing that potential. During the month of December and over winter break we will be reading "Dare to Lead: Brace Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Heart" by Brené Brown to discuss how to be better leaders in our own lives.
