What is COURAGEworks?

Developed by Brené Brown, COURAGEworks is an online learning community that offers eCourses, workshops, and interviews for anyone who is ready for braver living and loving.

Our Beliefs

COURAGEworks is a research-based program developed on four key beliefs and grounded in Brené's fifteen years of research on courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy.

Be Vulnerable

Vulnerability – the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome – is our greatest measure of courage. Vulnerability is at the core of difficult emotions like fear, grief and disappointment, but it's also the birthplace of love, belonging, innovation, and creativity - the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.

Be Brave

If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Getting back up requires us to turn toward the truth of our struggle and look it in the eye. When we deny our stories, they define us. When we run from struggle, we are never free.

Less Scarcity. More Daring.

People are tired of being afraid. The scarcity culture created by allowing fear and blame to run roughshod over our families, communities, and organizations can only be transformed by individual acts of daring.

Choose Courage

We are all called to be brave with our lives and answering that call means choosing courage over comfort, choosing what's right over what's easy, practicing our values rather than professing them and leaning into our vulnerability.

Our Purpose

COURAGEworks exists to transform the cultures of families and communities through connected learning and courageous conversations so that we can all answer the call to show up, be seen, and live brave, wholehearted lives.
