    In this session you will learn how to deepen the connections in your relationships based on the seven elements of trust. We will explore the relationship of vulnerability and trust.  And learn about what inhibits us from being vulnerable. We will examine all of this through the lenses of our personal and work relationships.

    “Rumbling is stepping into the story, owning it and taking it to the mat!” ~ Brene Brown

    As Women in Leadership, we must look at ourselves daily to discover something new and learn more about who we are. The exploration and acceptance of our selves will be enhanced by a deeper understanding of what Brene Brown calls, “Rumbling”. Join Suzanne to dissect our anxiety, grief and forgiveness to reveal an authentic and vulnerable look at stepping into our stories.
