An Introduction to Daring Greatly: Tools for Courageous Living

  • General Assembly Seattle, WA (map)

Based on the work by acclaimed author, researcher and storyteller Brené Brown; we will spend two hours in this workshop defining our core values and the behaviors that support them. We will learn about trust and how to foster relationships to build trust in our own lives. Finally we will debunk the myths of vulnerability and understand what courage looks when we dare greatly in our lives.

Below are pieces of Brené's "Daring Greatly" curriculum that we will use as the basis for our conversations together.
