NEXT WEEK - Our Newest Addition To The Wellbeing Center
Skill Practice: Vulnerability + Perfection
July 17, 2020, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM PDT (4:30 PM - 5:30 PM PDT)

Living a life we can wake up every morning and be proud of takes practice. Defined, intentional practice. If you're like me, the permission to be vulnerable: uncertain, at risk, or emotionally exposed, has been deemed shameful and weak since we were children. As a result, we move through life charging towards perfectionism, exceedingly afraid to fail.

We are excited to have Kim Linton join our Wellbeing Center team. Kim works with individuals and teams who want to make work modern, courageous, and intentional. She is a Brené Brown Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitator, and provides agile, repeatable, people-positive solutions for teams. If you're a fan of , Kim's work will speak to you.
