Daring to Work Strong Workshop – January 26, 2016

This workshop presented by Laurie Hillis, MA, PCC is based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, New York Times bestselling author. We’ll explore the three elements of the Rising Strong™ process: The Reckoning, The Rumble and The Revolution. Through this process we examine the power of the stories that we tell ourselves and learn how to write daring new endings.

Target Audience:

The session has been designed for coaches, leaders and people who are interested in awakening their own and other’s curiosity about emotions and how emotion is connected to our behavior and thoughts.

Learning Outcomes:

The session will use the Rising Strong process at both the micro and macro levels to increase wholeheartedness in living, loving, and leading. It is an interactive session with a combination of pre-session reading and other learning methods. Using metaphor, story-telling, and experiential exercises you will share in meaningful partner discussions and learn practical tools to incorporate into your life. You will receive your own copy of The Rising Strong inspiring workbook and other rich resources.

Learning Objectives:

  • Become familiar with the physics of vulnerability and the ten rules of engagement for rising strong.
  • Identify the values that are most important in our life and learn why values clarification is essential to the development of resiliency.
  • Explore the critical role emotion plays in behavior change and the connections between emotion, thought and behavior.
  • Understand how offloading emotion moves us away from our values and corrodes culture.
  • Develop actionable strategies for getting back up after a fall or setback so that we can live, love, and lead with greater courage.
