Rising Strong Workshop
Two-day workshop over two weeks
Friday 5th & 12th May 2017
The Cowork Collective
421 Lygon St, East Brunswick, VIC
*Places strictly limited*
A workshop for anyone who wishes to be braver in how they live, love and lead. This is how you rise strong in the face of challenge.
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.
Rising Strong™ Workshop is a research-based program about what it takes for us to get back up, live a more wholehearted and satisfying life by owning our stories. By participating in the Rising Strong™ Workshop you will have the opportunity to explore how to live bravely every day by showing up in the various arenas of your life to become the best, most authentic version of you.
Throughout the workshop, you be will guided through many positive experiential exercises, personal exploration, watch exclusive videos from Brené Brown created specifically for Rising Strong™ participants and have opportunities for personal reflections and growth in a safe, supportive, positive and fun environment.
The Rising Strong™ Workshop is designed to address your personal goals, relationships, professional and creative lives.
You’ll learn and experience how to:
:: Clarify your core values and beliefs
:: Recognise emotions and increase curiosity
:: Build your vocabulary for explaining hard emotions
:: Learn a robust framework for hard conversations
:: Own your story
:: Learn how to set and communicate healthy boundaries
:: Understand the mechanics of trust
:: Develop practices for processing anxiety and criticism
:: Increase resiliency and courage
:: Cultivate wholehearted living, loving and leading

When you deny the story, it owns you. When you own the story, you get to write the ending.
