What is The Daring Way™?

The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown PHD LMSW. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders.  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. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. A primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings.  Further information available at:

Rising Strong™ Groups

America’s Reigning Expert on Feelings, Brené Brown Now Takes on Leadership
Brené Brown
Jose Tutiven for TIME  by BELINDA LUSCOMBE - November 1, 2018

Brené Brown, Ph.D., is a swinger. She really puts herself out there and goes at it with purpose, no matter whom she’s doing it with. To be clear: She swings on swings, in the park.

She can swing while expounding on how research changes the way you see pain. She can swing with dignity.

This should not come as a complete surprise. Brown, 52, a research professor at the University of Houston, has built a mini-empire around the academic study of courage, vulnerability, shame and empathy, at least two of which are required to get on the swings in New York City’s Central Park in broad daylight as an adult and enjoy it. Her realm, the Brené Brown Education and Research Group, includes five best-selling books (the fifth joined the pack in October) and two dozen speaking engagements a year ($100,000 a pop) at outfits as varied as the Air Force and Pixar. A nonprofit, Daring Education, spreads her teaching even wider. Since 2010, when she gave her spectacularly viral TED talk about the power of vulnerability (35 million views and counting), Brown has become one of.......
