About Rianne Kuik

We all experience feelings of fear, insecurity and shame. At work as well as in our private lives. For a long time, I thought I was the only one struggling with this. In practice, this meant I was primarily focussed on pleasing other people and trying to meet others' expectations.

And not without success… After my degree in Commercial Economics, this led me to a great career, going from temp consultant to director at USG People.

"Who you are, is how you lead."
Brené Brown

Changing tack

After a reorganisation in 2011, I was made redundant. For me, this was the moment to change tack and listen to that little voice deep inside me that said there had to be a different way. Because as perfect as my life may have appeared, inside I often felt insecure, doubting if what I did was good enough.

In 2012, I decided to become an entrepreneur, starting daretoconnect.nl a year later. The work of Dr Brené Brown, and the results of her research into courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy, particularly in a corporate environment, are an important source of inspiration. In 2019, I was trained by Brené Brown herself and became a Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator.

With daretoconnect.nl, I inspire and support leaders and their teams in developing and implementing the leaderships skills necessary for business success and growth.

I live in Hollandscheveld, together with Robert and his children Hidde and Marije.
