About this event

There is no greater threat to the critics and cynics and fearmongers than those of us who are willing to fall because we have learned how to rise. – Dr Brené Brown

How well equipped are you to deal with your inner life when things go sideways? When despite all our best intentions, fool-proof plans and bravery, we end up face down in the arena? Rising Strong™ is about how to get back on our emotional feet, so we can keep showing up in our workplaces, families and relationships as the leader we want to be.

This practical workshop will walk you through the three-part Rising Strong™ process using your own stories, to understand what happens when we're caught in a hard moment and how to get on the other side of it intact and braver.

This evidence-based process is a result of Dr Brené Brown's 20 years of research as a professor of social work at the University of Houston, and her more recent studies into leadership based on her work with some of the world's largest and most innovative and influential companies and leaders, as reported in her two best-selling books Rising Strong (2015) and Dare To Lead(2018).

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. When we take risks in our lives, we will inevitably experience disappointments, hurts, failures and heartbreak. Rising Strong is about what it takes to get back up and how owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and the clearest path to a wholehearted life. - Dr Brené Brown
