Dare to Lead in the Church
Thursdays, April 8 - May 27, from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM CST
Via Webcast | LIVE ONLINE
Maybe you’ve felt yourself leading from the extremes: hiding your true thoughts and emotions in order to keep the peace, then over-reacting to relatively small issues or problems at other points. Is “authentic leadership” just another meaningless buzzword, or can it be something bigger (and even better) than a hashtag?
When we’re separated from our values – even unconsciously – we become separate from ourselves. It takes courage to live and lead authentically.
That kind of integration takes courage. It isn’t built overnight, but it can start now.
What You’ll Learn
- The four sets of skills inherent to daring leadership
- Self-awareness and emotional literacy that impacts your thoughts and decisions
- Appropriate vulnerability and the myths that keep you from authenticity
- How your core values inform your professional life
- The skills that guide tough conversations – including giving and receiving feedback
- What role “meaning-making” plays in humans and the stories we tell ourselves
- … and so much more!
This workshop will help you cultivate community by improving your skills in deep listening, pastoral care, and the formation of life-giving relationships even in difficult circumstances.
How it Works
Join our host, Rev. Sarah Ciavarri, and an engaged learning cohort of fellow faith leaders live and online!
Participate in eight three-hour webcast sessions
Be there on Thursday mornings – from April 8 through May 27 – as Rev. Ciavarri applies groundbreaking research by Dr. Brené Brown to the area of church leadership. Based on what they learn, participants will build an integration plan for continued development after the course concludes.
Practice within a safe context
During the course, participants will have break-out sessions to discuss and apply what they’re learning in order to prepare for real-life situations.
Develop meaningful connections
Leadership never grows to its full potential inside a vacuum. The reality is, having people in your life who are walking a similar path makes the journey easier and more fulfilling. This course is a great opportunity to meet other like-minded leaders that have shared the same experience.

ONE SPECIAL NOTE
While Dare to Lead training is frequently provided in corporate settings at a significantly higher cost (approximately $2,000), we are grateful to Rev. Ciavarri’s willingness to offer this course at a fraction of the price. With that in mind, we are requesting that registration be limited to church leaders only. This includes pastors, judicatory leaders, church planters, bi-vocational pastors, and new, emerging, or discerning leaders. If you fall into one or more of these groups, welcome!
Additionally, due to the nature of the material presented and discussed, being in a place of relative emotional health and/or stability prior to attending this course is recommended.
Get access to the full course for just $500.
- Eight live webcasts (three hours each)
