The Daring Way™

“It’s worse to spend your life on the outside looking in, wondering what if, than it is to try and dare greatly and risk the chance of failure. Dare greatly; get in the arena and try.” - Dr Brené Brown
What is The Daring Way™
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr Brené Brown on vulnerability, shame, worthiness and courage. The method was developed to help men, women, and adolescents learn how to show up, be seen, and live braver lives. 
Participating in the one day workshop will help employees increase profits through peak performance, bold decisions making, increase productivity, as well as improved creativity and innovation.
The Daring Way™ workshop helps you to apply Dr Brené Brown’s insights and research findings into your day-to-day life. You choose the area you want to improve and develop, and through a process of sharing, learning and exploring you will find powerful and transforming new ways to show up wholeheartedly in your life. We explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviours that are holding us back and we identify the new choices and practices that will move us toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
Practicing The Daring Way™ you will...
  • Deepen your relationships
  • Let go of fears that hold you back 
  • Embrace the power of your own life story
  • Cultivate intimacy and connection 
  • Drop the need for perfectionism

What others have said...
I thought you were going to teach us to feel comfortable about carelessly exposing ourselves to the world. Knowing that vulnerability is not about oversharing, but finding the right people to tell your story to, helped me understand why some of my relationships were not working like their supposed to.”

"I did not come here to learn about sales, but I came out knowing why I was battling with my sales targets. That old feeling of vulnerability and not wanting to be rejected. Now I understand where it’s coming from and how to overcome that."
