Overwhelmed & overworked? It doesn’t have to be this way.

You know there’s a better life than the one you’re living.  You feel it deep down in your bones. You dream about it. Meditate on it. You’ve tried all the things, read all the personal development books. But nothing is working. And the exhaustion is just so real.

  • The weight of the world has worn you down like a thousand years of water on a rock.
  • The squirrels in your yard have better focus than you do.
  • You slept better after having your first baby than you’ve been sleeping lately.
  • You, yourself are at the very bottom of your to-do list. And we all know that item never gets done.

Join Dare to Lead™ facilitator Koren Motekaitis to rise out of that murky pit of despair.  Stop drowning. Go ahead and Dare to Lead™ both professionally + personally. Put yourself first for once. This group coaching program is based on research by professor, renowned public speaker, and New York Times Bestselling Author (times 5) Dr. Brené Brown. You can create what’s possible with serious practice and support. You get to be with others who are being BRAVE LEADERS in their personal & professional lives!

Reach out if you are ready to change your life. It will be hard, you will want to walk away but when you stick with it, you will be amazed at your strength. ~Sylvia, US

Say hello to your courage & confidence

(And finally kick quitting to the curb)

You’re dying to live the good life.  But you’ve already spent so much time sitting alone with your anxiety and fear, Madame Butterfly style. Rocking. Palms sweating.  Does this sound like you?

  • Your stress level is too high, and you’re paralyzed by anything other than naps.
  • You’ve been a high achiever forever… and that’s given you nothing but heartache and wrinkles.
  • You crave connection, but fear rejection.
  • You often bury yourself in working harder, not smarter — until you finally give up on yourself and others.

The Dare to Lead™ program is for you, friend. Stop quitting and start believing in yourself. We’ll find our courage and confidence together in a safe space. Creating an amazing life that you actually enjoy takes courage and bravery.  This program provides a deep level of support, accountability, and practice. You will Dare To Lead™ everywhere. Every day. And develop deep-in-your-bones confidence and courage that stays with you forever!

Give yourself the gift of committing 100% and I don't think you'll be disappointed. In the beginning I had to fight my skepticism, my pattern of deciding in the middle that maybe this wasn't the right move, etc. and commit to the absolute best case scenario and it was totally worth it. I wanted to feel my own worthiness, my joy, my connection, my confidence in my bones and I do. ~ Yvonne

A year ago I was at the absolute bottom of where I could be. I was anxious and very tense all of the time. I didn’t know life without that tension. A lot of the process [of ENOUGH] was recognizing that that tension was there. I knew there were changes I wanted to make, and to some degree I wanted my thoughts, the way I look at things, challenged so I could see what was going on. And then having been challenged [by Koren], I chose to do something different. And that’s what has been helpful over the last year.

Until [ENOUGH] I didn’t know that I could change. I think it’s going through the process as much as anything is just-- committing to an outcome. I still have the same job, married, the only thing that’s changed is me. A year ago I didn’t feel emotionally able to deal with a lot of things that were going on. Now I can look back and say yes, I have evolved [to a better version of myself.]

About the Dare to Lead™ Program

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirical research-based courage-building program designed to be facilitated by organizational development professionals.  

The most significant finding from Brené's latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, measurable, and observable. 

The Dare to Lead™ program focuses on developing these courage-building skills through workshops, trainings, and coaching to help individuals, teams, and organizations move from armored leadership to daring leadership.

Individuals who successfully complete the full 12-month Dare to Lead™ program will receive a certificate of completion, and are invited to put the Dare to Lead Trained badge on their LinkedIn account.

You should definitely reach out to her.  She's tough, direct, will hold you accountable and always be there for you.  She will ask you questions you don't want to answer.  You'll get out of it what you put into it.  It can be overwhelming at times, but if you commit to doing the work, being honest and are willing to be vulnerable, especially when you don't want to, it will be a life changing experience.” ~ Carol, United States

Knowledge is only rumor until it lives in the bones.

– Asaro Tribe

"If you truly want to have a better life with deeper relationships, and a sense of peace in your own life, and to stop feeling shitty about just about everything you do and that happens to you, then yes. Be prepared to have to look hard at yourself and your beliefs, and be willing to dig into the old stories and beliefs that are controlling you. To go through the work with Koren and come out on the other side feeling the way I feel now is something that I'm so grateful for, and wish I could share with everyone!" ~ Carol, United States​​
