The Daring Way™

About the Daring Way™

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. We examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors 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.

The Work

It is a privilege and an honour to officially facilitate the work of Dr. Brené Brown and her methodology, The Daring Way™, in our practice. The concepts developed by Dr. Brené Brown and her research provide a solid foundation of Personal Leadership, making it a great, if not perfect fit. Here’s how Brené describes the progression of her work:

The Gifts of Imperfection – Be you.

Daring Greatly – Be all in.

Rising Strong – Fall. Get up. Try again.

The Daring Way™ crosses genders, race, cultures, age, sexuality and spiritual beliefs making it inclusive to all people and, it easily integrates into your life. The Daring Way™ is one of the most powerful methods we have encountered to support your journey from ‘never enough’ to ‘I am enough’.  All the while embracing the path of wholehearted living; which put simply, is living life from a place of worthiness.

Having embraced the work into all aspects of our lives we speak from experience when we say how profound and powerful it is! Actually, truth be told, we wouldn’t be doing what we are doing without the impact of this work!

We bring The Daring Way™ methodology into our practice during our individual client sessions and we also facilitate a suite of The Daring Way™ workshops. Throughout the workshops you learn how to apply Dr. Brené Brown’s methodology into your day-to-day life. Workshops are currently held in person.
