Rising Strong with Paula Shoup

How do people consistently get back up with more courage, compassion and connection after they fall in the service of daring greatly? What do they do differently?

Brené Brown, PhD, researched these questions over years of interviews with wholehearted people and created a process that is powerful in shifting your ability to get back up stronger, with more compassion and connect and to dare greatly again and again.

Our human brains are wired for story and when we fall (not if), if we get stuck in our stories, they can define who we are and how we show up.

In this Rising Strong™ workshop based on the powerful research of Brené Brown, PhD, you will learn how to:

  • Get curious about your stories and emotions to move forward
  • Use tools to increase your resilience and alignment with your authentic self (or soul) for more courage, compassion and connection
  • Re-write your stories to dare greatly more and rise strong.

Here’s what prior participants are saying:

Paula was an excellent facilitator. Her transparency and deep wisdom of Brené Brown’s work was so helpful in applying concepts to my own life. This course can transform your life in a safe and open learning environment!
— Lynne Brown, Coach and Organizational Development Consultant
This was such a great time of remembering the importance of vulnerability for everyone, especially for leaders! Paula is a very skilled facilitator and made it easy to relax and be real. The material is great and she did an excellent job of keeping us moving, yet not feeling rushed. I’ll definitely do another workshop with her!
— Gina Pollard, Spiritual Coach
I really liked the workbook and videos. I feel like I got a lot out of the day! It was perfect for me!

Paula was kind and gentle and all ideas mattered. I liked that she shared (her own examples) and tied in other Brené Brown work.
