We all need to learn to be braver! Thank you Kylie, for such a life-changing experience, I’m ready to step into the arena (even if I get it wrong sometimes). Thank you!

  • To be completely honest, I felt uncomfortable and challenged at the start of this workshop but I was so glad to have gone through this journey. What a wonderful transformative experience! Thank you Kylie for your beautiful, encouraging demeanour and excellent presentation. This learning has helped me tremendously.


    - Donatella Mannolini, Assistant Principal, VCASS

  • The lessons keep resonating around my head – only this morning I circled back about something that happened last week. I explained the story in I had made up. I felt not only confident to have the conversation but excited about having the right words to use to explain the position without emotion hijacking the conversation. I got the issue sorted but more importantly I got the relationship back on track. These are hugely important lessons learned at the Dare To Lead workshop.
