Brené Brown to Keynote the i4cp 2018 Conference

Dr. Brené Brown, three-time #1 New York Times best-selling author and renowned scholar, will keynote the i4cp 2018 Conference: Next Practices Now, the leading human capital event for HR, learning and talent leaders.

The i4cp 2018 Conference, dedicated to discovering next practices you can implement now, takes place March 26 – 29, 2018 in Scottsdale, Arizona and will feature dozens of thought leader and senior executive presentations, as well as an abundance of premium networking and collaboration for the 350 practitioners in attendance. To ensure rich and open discussion, vendors and consultants are not allowed to attend.

Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, where she holds the Huffington Foundation-Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past 16 years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of three #1 New York Times bestsellers – The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and Rising Strong. Her latest book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and The Courage to Stand Alone, will be released September 2017.

At the i4cp 2018 Conference, Brown will present “Daring Leadership: The Four Pillars of Courage.” This timely address will resonate with leaders across organization type, size, and mission—from entrepreneurial startups, family-owned businesses, to Fortune 100 companies—all of whom are asking the same questions: How do we cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do we embed the value of courage in our culture?

During Brown’s presentation, attendees will explore how courage is taught, developed, and measured, including:

  • The four foundational skill sets of courage – vulnerability, clarity of values, trust, and rising skills.
  • How to develop the twenty-six behaviors that ladder up to each of the four pillars of courage.
  • The role of courage and discomfort in authentic leadership.
  • How fear, blame, and scarcity sabotage our work and our relationships.
  • Actionable strategies for leaning into our discomfort and embracing vulnerability as a source of courageous leadership.

The i4cp 2018 Conference is often ranked among the best HR events of the year due to its senior-level networking atmosphere and forward-looking presenters. Registration is now open – sign up by September 30 to save $500.
