• Leadership and Navigation
Story is king states Pixar, and we all love a good story. Our mind’s thrive on the beginning, middle, and ending of a story. Even in the absence of accurate information our minds will fill in the blanks to find completion. Rising Strong™ is a book and a program, written by Brené Brown that invites you to examine your personal stories. This program offers you the opportunity to dive deeply into your story to gain greater awareness and understanding so that you can rewrite those stories to be more self-affirming, improve your relationships, and to live with more courage, authenticity, and worthiness. If we do not take the time to identify our story then the story drives our behavior. It’s only in naming of the story and becoming curious do we give ourselves the choice to create a different narrative. We invite you to step into your own personal story/struggle; be courageous, get curious.
