What is The Daring Way™?

The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ curricula are highly experiential methodologies based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The processes are designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. Each curriculum can be adapted or facilitated in individual, educational, and professional settings.

During both processes we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and to develop new practices that will move them toward more authentic and wholehearted living.

The Daring Way™ curriculum focuses on developing shame resilience skills and deepening daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

Rising Strong™ builds upon Brene´s research on vulnerability with practical applications for living wholeheartedly. Utilizing reflection and story telling, we unpack the 'physics of failure', learning to recognize our emotional triggers and shifting from fear-based decision making to courageous leadership at work and in all aspects of our lives. 

I lead weekend workshops, retreats and evening classes in The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ processes. I am happy to develop half day or full day experiential learning workshops, or to speak on 'Brave Leadership' for your group or organization. I also welcome pro-bono inquires from non-profit organizations dedicated to doing brave work in our communities. No matter the format, these processes offer insights and promise a deeply transformational experience.

This class has been a godsend. I spend most of my time caretaking, often forgetting the need for self care or feeling guilty when I do. The Daring Way™ gave me the permission I needed to not only care for myself but to learn how to be authentic & how to be heard. I find myself using the material I learned daily; it has helped me improve relationships in the workplace, home and friendships. I was even able to walk away from a toxic relationship that I never would have done without learning about “the arena”. Thank you so much for all you do.
