I’ve decided to withdraw from the Brené Brown dare to lead course, being held in Texas later this year. It was a massive decision for me to go on this course, given the financial requirements and an equally massive one for me to withdraw from it. Sometimes, it’s just not our time and I think this is one of them.

It’s a game of two halves: there are personal reasons for withdrawing and also some reservations about the course and my expectations. If it’s meant to be, I’m sure I’ll get another opportunity to go, when it’s right to do so. In the meantime, I will continue to enjoy and learn from Brené’s work.

I do think that it’s important to retain our perspective though. I’m sure the course will be amazing, but it will not define me or change the heart of who I am. It would add to it. On that basis, I can still move forward and offer what I have – but for the moment not as a Brené Brown accredited coach and that’s ok. Until the next time and the next opportunity.

Nik Davis
NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.
