Dare to Care!

Dare to Care!








Why Dare to Care?

Do you avoid conflict and confrontation? 

Have you ever diminished yourself because of your fear to speak?

Are you suffering because you cannot say no?

Do you long for relationships to be deeply connected, whole and real?

Do relationships at work or in your team or family exist as battlegrounds or black holes?

We live in a world where being held to account is rarely done well. 

Imagine your life when you know you have the tools to speak what needs to be said in a way that honours you and the other, every time. Where your team are free to do their great work unburdened by messy relational breakdowns. Where your words and voice become a transmission, creating what you most need, want and desire for a world with a future for all. 


Many of us also care about something greater than ourselves. Our children, the future, our home planet, justice, the work we do for a world with a future? 

Do we Dare to Care to speak and act for that which we hold as worthy of our life force energy?


If our relationships are not grounded in care for each other what is the point?

Clean Communication



Work and live light


The Truth will set us free


Even if it hurts first

A personal note from Christine

I created Dare to Care – Radical Truth with Compassion – over 20 years ago, delivering it throughout one of Australia’s biggest banks to support performance management and team building. It was so loved by people that it was requested to be delivered at all levels of the bank.

As a result of Dare to Care peoples lives have been changed for the better, relationships that seemed broken have been repaired, and families have come back together.

How do we communicate with care? How do we stand for things we care about? How do we support the best in ourselves and others? 

How do we communicate respectfully when we are in situations where we feel care is missing from ourselves or the other?

When we lose the conversation and relationship with our work, we lose our meaning in work.

When we lose the conversation and relationships with our friends and family, we lose our connection to joy, happiness and intimacy.

When we lose the conversation and relationship with ourselves, we are lost.

The Dare to Care workshop provides powerful, practical tools to ensure our conversations are spoken with care, respect, radical truth and the generosity of wholehearted courage.

Whether you apply these tools and skills to your personal or work life, or to the conversation with yourself and your work, you will be enriched for learning them.

When we Dare to Care well, lives are better.


Move through that fear of speaking up, speaking truth to power, saying no and meaning no, saying YES with the whole of your being.

Heal relationships that matter

Clean up the nasty unsaid toxic relationships so you can live light

Find your voice, find your power, find your bold

Enable exquisite connection with people you care about

Find your true voice and speak with authority when needed

Become comfortable with your vulnerability

Handle conflict and upset with dignity and respect

Speak truth to power

Never be the person marginalised and exploited again


Christine stands out for delivering real behaviour change in an industry noted for it’s focus on intangible measures. As a demonstration of her value, at the end of the company sponsored program “Dare to Care,” a number of the participants chose to keep working with Christine and to pay for doing so from their own pockets. It is worth reflecting on how many times you have actually seen that happen.”Mark Tod, Stramit (previously with ANZ bank)

“Excellent class and impeccable leading! Christine, you modeled so many powerful things for me. I felt the strength and effectiveness of your direct style and incredibly complete presence. I also appreciated how real you were – naming the areas individuals needed to grow, in a clear, neutral way. Your incredible integrity shone through. Thank you!!!!!” Ramsay Drew Steward

This would have to be the best course I have attended at ANZ. The course content was relevant and the presentation excellent. David McIntrye. ANZ

​George Bernard Shaw said, “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.” Many leaders rationalize that people know what they mean or want without clearly speaking it. Their fears stop them but they rationalize their actions with excuses. Communication can inspire or deflate, can connect or deflect, can keep us small in our positions and life when our hearts want more. Your program can open minds, hearts, and the courageous guts of for us all.

This is a fundamental building block of life. Do this well and you will do life well.

It’s the values and philosophy behind not just the workshop but the ethos of Syntropic that lead me to the Dare to Care course. I can feel the integrity that everything that is being taught, is something Christine has worked on herself. I loved seeing real life examples. It helped me to see how I can apply it in my own life.


Why should a business owner or person make the investment in the Dare to Care Workshop? 

Because if we all took time to consider how we communicate and what is best for another, the world would change in an instant.

Because the key to changing the world is through clear, pure communication. This was a big realisation for me.

​I would recommend that anyone, but particularly business owners, would benefit from investing in the Dare to Care workshop because it gives you frameworks for handling difficult conversations, managing expectations and working through conflict in relationships which is bound to affect all workplaces with at least minor impact, and possibly massive impact infiltrating the culture of the workplace.  An unhealthy culture of miscommunication leading to misunderstandings and angst in the workplace can lead to staff turnover, wasting time and reduce the effectiveness of the business towards achieving their purpose. This workshop can help create a healthy thriving ecosystem, with respectful relationships and clean communication that enables people to handle misunderstandings quickly and get to the heart of what they are there for. 

DARE TO CARE and you will have the tools to…

Transform defensiveness and blame

Build cultures of accountability and responsibility at every level. Leave behind powerlessness, justification, blame, sanctioned helplessness

Make requests, manage expectations, challenge assumptions and eradicate ambiguity

Start with clarity. Speak as  transmission. Stand for something greater than self, enabling requests to be uncontaminated by ambiguity, manipulation or coersion.

Manage all forms of conflict resolution

Whether you are confict averse or conflict comfortable we can all find a better way to stand in the heat of untethered emotions, blame, judgements and critisism. Learn to understand first.

Set the context for the most difficult conversations

Context provides the space and place for a conversation. If we seek an exceptional outcome that dignifies all parties we need to be sure to establish a safe, respectful context.

Speak with vulnerable strength

The ability to be vulnerable is a strength. There is a fine line between vulnerability and maintaining clear and strong boundaries. Openness doesn’t mean being too ‘nice.’ Radical Truth with compassion requires a greater care.

Say no as a complete sentence

Learn to say NO and mean no. ‘No’ doesn’t require a story, justification or excuses. Learn to stand in the clarity of ‘No’ with respect and dignity.

This is the beginning of an amazing adventure

Still have doubts if this is for you?

Will it work?

There are many choices available as we learn to become better communicators and as a result better parents, partners, collaborators and citizens.
The difference that makes the difference with Dare to Care is we start with the inner journey.
How are we showing up for ourselves first? How does this translate into communication, even without words, to others?
True communication is the response we get. If the response we are getting is not towards a better relationship, what do we need to do to change how we communicate?
How do we hold the other, no matter our judgements or opinions of them, with the greatest dignity we can muster?
Every tool and skill we teach in Dare to Care translates into every form of relationship, be that at work, at home, or in the community.
Ultimately we get to have better and deeper connections, become comfortable with our own vulnerability, to be better leaders, parents and partners.
Connection. Care. Strong relational bonds.
These are the outcomes of the practice of Daring to Care.


Because relationships are the foundation of human existence we believe Dare to Care is extraordinarily valuable. You have access to the Online learning portal ongoing to review any part of the Dare to Care workshop. The opportunity to also become a part of the Global Syntropic World community as a graduate is priceless.
We do offer scholarships to those who are deeply committed to the Syntropic Dare to Care journey yet cannot afford the payment plan. Please email us if you would like to apply for a scholarship or alternative payment plan.

Too overwhelming, Not enough time?

Yep, we get it. Our task as people who care deeply can seem incredibly overwhelming. We work with Kairos time – time in harmony with Universe. All the material is there for you to access at any time. The Community can be there for you when the time is right. There is no pressure.
The richness of Dare to Care comes through your fellow participants and their experience, contributions and questions, which is why we encourage attendance to the LIVE sessions.


Change is hard

Which is why we do it together.

Deepen Connections



Real relationships based in truth and care. Communities of FLOW, where the relational dynamic is clean and clear.

Is this for individuals or business owners or leaders?

Dare to Care is designed for individulas, teams, whole enterprises, partnerships, community groups and families. Ideally we get a diverse mix in each Workshop, which enables a higher degree of co-learning.

How do I access the materials?

Why we offer Dare to Care in 4 currencies

As an Australian, I am tired of paying for courses and events in $US or £ or € where my money is nearly halved. At the same time travelling to Europe the costs in Euro are similar to the costs in Australia for the same things, without the currency conversion. We wanted to make this a more fair exchange. This is based on trust. If you are a US citizen and you want to save yourself one-third of the fee, that is your choice. At the same time, if you can afford the full fee in your currency that means we at Syntropic World can continue to invest in advancing tools and models for a world with a future.

Dear friends,

Everyone knows the pain of miscommunication, being misunderstood, or failing to manage expectations.

We know the feeling of being judged, criticised, exploited, rejected and ridiculed.

We know the longing of wanting to fit in, to belong, to be a part of something with others.

We know we often get in the way of ourselves. We want to be HELD to OUR BEST, with love and care.

We want to work with others on projects we care deeply about and do so in an environment that allows the best of ourselves to be present.

We want ecologies of TRUST.

The quality of our relationships is the foundation of a quality life.

To be able to speak, communicate, request, negotiate, listen, understand, invite, enrol and commune with elegance and grace is a lifelong journey.

The tools and skills learned in the Dare to Care workshop will become foundation tools for your better life, your greater leadership, for profoundly rich relationships.

We would love to welcome you, please reach out if you have further questions,
