Leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies, are asking the same question: How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture?

If we’re brave enough often enough we will fall. Rising strong after a setback, disappointment, or failure is how we cultivate wholeheartedness in our lives; it’s the process that teaches us the most about who we are. In this keynote, we will: Explore the critical role emotion plays in resetting after a fall and the connections between emotion, thought and behavior. Define integrity and explore how offloading emotion moves us away from our values and corrodes culture. Examine the power of storytelling and the dangers of confabulations and conspiracies. Explore the three elements of the rising strong process (The Reckoning, The Rumble, and The Revolution). Develop actionable strategies for getting back after a fall or setback so that we can live, love, and lead with greater courage. ...less

True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are. This type of courage and strength can only be forged in the wilderness – through the lived experiences of collective joy and pain, curiosity and questioning, investing in connection, and grounded confidence. ...less
