I currently offer several workshops designed to cultivate skill sets to understand and learn from life’s setbacks - be it in life or workplace - and emerge more courageous, compassionate and connected with others.
In accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Guidelines, all workshops are currently being taught virtually Please subscribe to my mailing list (see Home page) to learn more about upcoming Daring Way workshops!
LEVERAGING OUR RESILIENCE: A LEAN IN CIRCLE
This is a no-cost opportunity to connect more deeply other women who share a common interest in leveraging their resilience in our post-pandemic world. It also provides you a little time to focus on yourself. We meet Wednesday evenings beginning May 5, 2021. If you’re interested, message me via the Lean In website or my Contact page on this site.
DARE TO LEAD™
I offer Dare to Lead™ workshops and keynotes designed to help leaders, teams and organizations develop the courage-building skills needed to move from “armored leadership” to “daring leadership.” Participants learn and practice the brave work, tough conversations, and wholeheartedness needed to support change in the workplace. Dare to Lead™ workshops also address issues related to diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging in the workplace. I also offer Dare to Lead™ on an individual basis and integrate it into my coaching. If you are interested in either of these options, send me a message via the Contact page on this site.
DARING WAY WORKSHOP #1—THE GIFTS OF IMPERFECTION™
My Gifts of Imperfection workshops feature ten “guideposts” for wholehearted living and specific practices for letting go of beliefs about who we’re supposed to be. This workshop promotes understanding about the importance of courage, compassion, and connection and how they are keys to owning our story, growing our sense of worthiness, embracing our authentic selves and loving ourselves through this process.
DARING WAY WORKSHOP #2—DARING GREATLY™
My Daring Greatly workshops focus on understanding the mechanics of vulnerability, shame, courage, and shame resilience and how they relate to life’s struggles. This workshop is based on Brené’s book by the same name and features the 4 steps of the Shame Resilience model—recognizing shame and shame triggers, practicing, reaching out, and speaking shame—and how these steps can be cultivated to strengthen participants’ abilities to “show up, be seen, and live brave” in life.
DARING WAY WORKSHOP #3—RISING STRONG™
My Rising Strong workshops feature a 3-step process for dealing with life’s falls (aka failures) - rumbling with vulnerability, reckoning with emotion and the revolution of practicing these steps for rising strong after life’s falls. It also introduces the BRAVING acronym—boundaries, reliability, accountability, vault, integrity, non-judgement, and generosity—and how we can leverage these behaviors to get back up after we experience falls in life. Everything you read in Brené’s book by the same name is addressed in this workshop.
