Topic: Courageous Leadership

Our workshop will be led by Melissa Hiatt. Melissa brings a practical expertise and professional skill set to develop the emotional health of individuals, families, teams and organizations. Having served as the pastor of an American Baptist Church, Melissa is particularly adept to the dynamics of churches and pastoral leadership. Trained by Brené Brown, Melissa teaches Dare to Lead, Daring Greatly and Rising Strong Workshops throughout the Midwest exploring vulnerability, shame, empathy, self-compassion and courageous leadership.  

The goal of this training is to help you become a braver, more daring leader – whether as a pastor, spouse, parent or just life in general and to help you lead with confidence in this time of uncertainty.
