Summer Series: Dare to Lead Facilitator Training

2024 LSC Summer Series Website Banner-01

3 Session Workshop Explanation

Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitators (CDTLFs) are trained on how to teach the skills, practices, and tools that underpin the four skill sets of courage: Rumbling with Vulnerability, Living into Our Values, Braving Trust, and Learning to Rise. These independent facilitators offer work-shops, trainings, and coaching to bring the Dare to Lead courage-building process into your organization.

Once you successfully complete the 3-session workshop with Margaret Delillo-Storey, CDTLF, you will be Dare to Lead Trained (and can add the Dare to Lead Trained badge in LinkedIn), which means you can take your team through our Daring Teams Rollout Program (DTRP). The DTRP was developed specifically for Dare to Lead Trained individuals to share the work with their own teams, serving as the group coordinator and co-learner – not as a trainer or facilitator. However, as a Dare to Lead Trained individual, you are not certified to facilitate the curriculum nor to offer the DTRP publicly.

All three sessions must be attended [9 am – 4:30 pm] to receive certification. Sessions will be held at retreat- like atmospheres around Stark County and include lunch, snacks, and beverages. Cost is $749 for friends of Leadership. This facilitation normally costs between $1,500 – $2,100.


“Inspiring. Reflective. Empowering. These three words describe the Dare to Lead Daring Leadership facilitator training that a team of educators and I were privileged to participate in during the months of Jan-Feb. 2023. Led by Dr. Margaret DeLillo-Storey, trained by Dr. Brene Brown, together we braved the work by sharing  courageous conversations, connected to the hearts of others in the group, and realized that the greatest potential that any of us has lies within ourselves. I highly recommend this training for personal growth and self-development because ‘Who we are is how we lead.’

“Four years ago, I became enamored with Brené Brown when I first read Dare to Lead. I have read all of her books, listened to every podcast, and watched every video that she has made. Honestly, I really thought that I knew all that I could possibly know about being a daring leader. That was until I did the facilitated Dare to Lead training with Dr. Margaret DeLillo-Storey.  I was blessed to participate in this guided training with several local educational leaders. It was a game- changer for me. Margaret is skilled at her role. She created a psychosocially safe space for all of us to learn, share, and grow. I am so grateful for Margaret and her guidance. She enhanced my understanding and has made me a better leader because of this experience. This is a MUST for all leaders, no matter what field you’re in! It will make you a better leader, a better parent, a better partner, a better friend, and all in all a better human being.”
