Courage and Resiliency Today

Coming in 2021

The struggle of isolation, physical distancing, and economic challenges of a job search all create more opportunities than ever to be hooked by an emotion that can bring out the worst of us. We’re going to explore both The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ materials by Brené Brown to find a path to more wholehearted living, where we can Show Up | Be Seen | Live Brave. Pre-registration required.

Daring Greatly in Your Job Search

Coming in 2021!

Any job transition creates vulnerability, disconnection and isolation - from our regular routines, co-workers, family and friends. Being unemployed is a huge shame trigger: our hearts can tell us we're not worth enough even though our heads may know that's not true.

This group is about what it takes to continue to show up in the Job Search Arena courageously (which requires vulnerability) to network successfully to the next job. Walk away with tools that equip you to show up courageously for this job search - AND a lifetime!Brené Brown's Daring Way™ is the curriculum and Diane Kinsella, Certified Daring Way Facilitator, leads. Diane is one of 1700 certified facilitators world-wide. Pre-registration required.

This is a crash course based on our most successful programs:

  1. We will start with the StrengthsFinder 2.0 assessment to understand how you uniquely contribute and define what a "right fit" looks likefor you.
  2. You will create some powerful statements about how you contribute for your marketing campaign.
  3. Next up is managing your digital handshake so that your LinkedIn profile creates a powerful first impression for people and places that would be a good fit for you.
  4. Finally, you will "re-launch" your search with a sharper focus on jobs that are in alignment with who you are, what you uniquely deliver, and a culture that matches.
