Rising Strong™ Workshop
The Reckoning. The Rumble. The Revolution.™ Based on the research of Brené Brown













We’ve all fallen, and we have the skinned knees and bruised hearts to prove it”, - Brené Brown, bestselling author of Rising Strong. Her book is all about those scraped knees and bruised hearts… and how to get back up braver and stronger than before.

In Part 3 of WXN Unite and Rise, we explore the roles that stumbling, falling, resetting and rising again play into the way we live, love, parent and most importantly lead. We look at the way they redefine “courage” and “bravery”; the way they foster creativity in unexpected places; shine a light on what’s truly important to us; and how they force us to make time for ourselves and others we love. Finally, we will explore the way it allows us to (re)discover belonging and joy in new places – and the places we’ve forgotten.

Led by Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 award winner Jenn Lofgren MCC, CPHR, CDWF and Alana Peters, PCC, B.Ed., CDWF, you’ll learn how to embrace vulnerability as a strength and how to show up and be seen with no guarantees of the outcome. For a one time registration, get a whole month of learning.
