Group Health Coaching: Book Club Edition

Inline image 2

In The Gifts of Imperfection, Brené Brown, a best selling author and leading expert on shame, authenticity, and belonging, shares what she's learned from a decade of research on the power of Wholehearted Living--a way of engaging with the world from a place of worthiness.

 In her ten guideposts, Brown engages our minds, hearts, and spirits as she explores how we can cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection to wake up in the morning and think that we are brave, self fulfilled, and worthy even when we are afraid and vulnerable.

 In this special book club edition of Group Health Coaching, we’ll be exploring 10 guideposts in “The Gifts of Imperfection” and discuss and applying the concepts into daily life in meaningful ways.
