Rising Strong: How the Ability to Reset Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead by Brene Brown Offered by: Virginia Municipal Clerks Association (VMCA) Institutes and Academy Hosted by: Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Facilitated by: Janice Bates, MMC

Social scientist Brené Brown has ignited a global conversation on courage, vulnerability, shame, and worthiness. Her pioneering work uncovered a profound truth: Vulnerability-the willingness to show up and be seen with no guarantee of outcome-is the only path to more love, belonging, creativity, and joy. But living a brave life is not always easy: We are, inevitably, going to stumble and fall.

It is the rise from falling that Brown takes as her subject in Rising Strong. As a grounded theory researcher, Brown has listened as a range of people-from leaders in Fortune 500 companies and the military to artists, couples in long-term relationships, teachers, and parents-shared their stories of being brave, falling, and getting back up. She asked herself, What do these people with strong and loving relationships, leaders nurturing creativity, artists pushing innovation, and clergy walking with people through faith and mystery have in common? The answer was clear: They recognize the power of emotion and they're not afraid to lean in to discomfort.
