This session will offer an opportunity to explore the multiple types of pathways learning can occur while honing in on the sequence of engagement that all humans use to access new information.

    The Regional Office of Education #1 is proud to host a Dare to Lead virtual delivery workshop for regional educators. Based on the research of Dr. Brené, Dare to Lead™, offered by Julie Boll Consulting, is an empirically based courage-building program. The Dare to Lead™ program is designed for individuals and teams who are ready to embrace brave leadership, shed their armor, and show up with whole hearts in their work and life. To scale daring leadership and build courage in teams and organizations, we must cultivate a culture in which brave work, tough conversations, and whole hearts are the expectation, and armor is not necessary or rewarded.
