Dare to Lead Coaches Programme with Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator Melissa Hague

Coaches Programme

Develop your courage-building skills so that you can coach with courage and clarity.


Welcome to Dare to Lead™ for Coaches

Hi, I'm Melissa Hague

I'm a Certified Facilitator for Brené Brown's Dare to Lead™ Programme.


Training personally with Brené in 2019 was a transformational learning experience for me - as a coach, as a human being and as a leader.


I recognise that coaching is one of the most courageous and vulnerable things that I do. I believe that developing our courage-building skills as coaches is critical for us and our clients. 


With that in mind, I offer a Dare to Lead programme aimed specifically at coaches, with all the fundamentals of the Dare to Lead™ programme, viewed through a coaching lens.

Dare to Lead™ is for coaches who want to...

  • Be more courageous in their coaching practice, business and life.

  • Be able to sit with the vulnerability of not knowing and not having the answers.

  • Be able to challenge their clients with integrity and strength.

  • Role model courageous leadership for their clients.

  • Understand their values at a deep level and actually live into their values in their daily lives.

  • Bounce back from the falls and setbacks that are inevitable when we are brave with our lives.

  • Practically implement the work of Brené Brown into their work and life.

The Dare to Lead™ for Coaches Programme



A 12-week facilitated programme in a group of courageous coaches. The group will be small to enable us to dig deep into the skillsets of courage and engage in a deeper dialogue around the application of Brené’s research to our work as coaches.


The programme includes facilitation, group discussions, self-reflection, practical activities and short videos hosted by Brené.


In between sessions, there will be additional materials and activities provided, along with support after the programme ends, to help you implement and embed your learning

The programme will cover the four courage-building skillsets of:

Rumbling with Vulnerability

The foundational skill of courage-building is the willingness and ability to step into the discomfort of being vulnerable. Without this core skill, the other three are impossible to put into practice. Our ability to be courageous coaches will never be greater than our capacity for vulnerability - leaning into risk, uncertainty, and emotional exposure.

Living into our Values 

Research participants who demonstrated the most willingness to be vulnerable and courageous anchored their behaviour to a couple of essential values, not 10 or 15.


Our core values give us courage and strength, especially when things are difficult.

Braving Trust 

It's a must-have in our important professional and personal relationships, but trust tends to be a vague concept. Understanding the seven evidence-based elements of BRAVING trust helps us to be specific and exchange feedback in meaningful ways that supports real change and enduring trust.

Learning to Rise

When we choose to be brave in our lives and work, it is inevitable that there will be failures, setbacks and disappointments. It is essential that we can learn and grow from these experiences and develop the resilience to get back up.

'If you're a  coach and interested in the work of Brené Brown, I highly recommend this programme. Melissa is highly knowledgeable and passionate and brings Brené's Dare to Lead work through a coaching lens. I loved the programme and learnt so much about myself as well as learning new tools for my coaching practice."
