Event description


Rising Strong is a learning experience about what it takes to get back up after disappointment, failure, and heartache.

It's a two-day experiential learning retreat for leaders, individuals, and teams.

Learning Outcomes

After attending Rising Strong™, you’ll be able to:

  • Identify the relationship between your emotions, thoughts, and behavior
  • Process difficult emotions instead of the norm (stuff em’, act out, etc.)
  • Bounce back from difficult experiences more quickly
  • Have a healthier relationship with struggle (disappointment, failure, heartbreak, etc.)

About Rising Strong™

Rising Strong™ is based on the research of Brené Brown, Ph.D. LMSW. Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Brené Brown Endowed Chair at the Graduate College of Social Work.

She has spent the past fifteen years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of three #1 New York Times Bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, and Rising Strong. Her TED talk – The Power of Vulnerability – is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world, with over 25 million viewers.

The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough, often enough, we will fall. Rising Strong is learning experience 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.

In the Daring Way we focus on being all in. Rising Strong is about falling, getting back up, and trying again.
