Workshop Description

A day for helping professionals, educators & entrepreneurs who - like you - want to cultivate an even more courageous, authentic, and passionate life.

 

Daring Greatly Quote 

 

What would you do if fear wasn’t holding you back?

Would you start a new business, charge more for your services, write a book, give a speech, teach a workshop, host an event, and/or create something the world has yet to see?

Would you would stand up for yourself, speak your mind without worrying about what other people think, say “no” without guilt, face conflict head-on, or create and maintain stronger boundaries with certain people in your life?

Maybe you would do that thing that terrifies you, like run a marathon despite never having run a day in your life!

So what does hold us back?

Too often, it is one of these things:

· Fear of criticism, judgement, or disapproval
· Comparing ourselves with others who are much farther ahead in the game
· The “Imposter Syndrome”
· Fear of scarcity
· Fear that we’re not ___ enough (fill in the blank: experienced, educated, old, young, wealthy, attractive etc)

And then there's this...

Have you ever built up the courage to do the thing you were afraid of and then found yourself trying to ensure approval from others?

Have you found it difficult to enjoy the process because you were so focused on the outcome?

Maybe you over prepare, work yourself to exhaustion by creating something “perfect”, or try to control everything in hopes others will be pleased and approve your job well done.

You think to yourself, there’s got to be another way.

 

What if there IS another way?

What if you could do it bravely, with confidence, purpose and a sense of worthiness no matter what other people think and no matter how it turns out?

This full day workshop is an invitation for you to slow down and think intentionally about how you’d like to SHOW UP more in your life. It’s an opportunity to celebrate where you are brave already, and a chance to look at where self-doubt, hesitation and/or fear are getting in the way of you being brave in other areas of your life.

Using the empirically based curriculum developed by Dr. Brené Brown, we will explore how to cultivate more courage, more authenticity and more confidence to help you move forward both personally and professionally. Using a mix of reflective writing, peer coaching and large group discussions, you will learn practices that transform the way we live, love, work, play, and lead.

 

We don’t have to do it alone. We were never meant to.

 

Will you join us?
