We help you find creative solutions for your home, work and relationships in a fun, hands-on workshop.

Brené  Brown defines a leader as someone who “takes responsibility for finding the potential in people and processes, and who has the courage to develop that potential.”

No matter what kind of leader you are, whether you’re a parent, a teacher, coach, or boss, you know how important it is to have clear and open communication.

A culture of safety and the freedom for everyone to express him or herself is important for working together, managing stress and feeling fulfilled. It’s not easy, but we can help you do it better.

Whatever vital role you play, we’ll help you use creative self-awareness to develop a more productive and fulfilling life.

What our workshop looks like:

You will learn how to unleash your creative side using no-pressure painting activities, story-telling, clay modeling, dance and other art activities, interspersed with short, dynamic presentations based on SelfAware 101™ and Dare to Lead™ materials.  We’ll travel to your workplace or venue, bring all the workshop supplies, and guide you through your customized curriculum.

(For in-depth reading about the science behind creativity, emotional intelligence, self-awareness and daring leadership, check out our Resources page.)

Research shows that those who engage in creative activities are evaluated 15 to 30 percent higher on performance ratings. Why? Creative activity increases self-awareness, which in turn increases emotional regulation, trust, empathy and the desire to bond with your team. It also reduces stress, which means better employee performance.
