The EDGE Women Experience (Powered by PEER Technology®)

Connection > Support > Sharing > Success!


As mid-career female leaders we have a tendency to feel that our challenges are unique to us and we have no choice but to face them alone. The truth is what we think of as individual to us, as women, is really a part of a larger collective experience. You are not alone!

Join us and tap into the power of our collective knowledge and insight.

Brené Brown Workshop Series

Two day workshops for Women exploring The Daring Way™


The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, and worthiness. 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. The primary focus is on developing resilience skills and daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent and lead.

“We need to have honest conversations about what it takes to bring our best, most authentic selves to work, and how to effectively encourage our colleagues to do the same.  We need to understand the human side of cultivating an organizational culture where people feel inspired and supported.  These conversations may sound risky and vulnerable, but risk and vulnerability are essential to courageous leadership.  Real change and innovation are within our reach if we’re willing to talk about the emotions, thoughts and behaviors that get in the way.”  – Dr. Brené Brown

Schedule and Curriculum: “SHOW UP | BE SEEN | LIVE BRAVE”

In this session, we will be following the Rising Strong process. Our goal will be to rise from our falls, overcome our mistakes, and face hurt in a way that brings more wisdom and wholeheartedness to our lives. Rising Strong is the same process whether you’re navigating personal or professional struggles. Because, if we are brave enough, often enough…we will fall. This is the physics of vulnerability. Rising Strong is just that: RISING Strong and owning our journey’s story…
