Event description
The Gifts of Imperfection experiential programme

About this event

The Gifts of Imperfection programme, based on the bestselling book by Dr Brené Brown, is about learning to be wholehearted - which is to engage with the world from a place of worthiness. Our authentic journey is about moving from “What will people think?” to “I am imperfect and I am enough.”

This programme is led by Ade Adeniji and Darren Brady, Certified Daring Way™ and Dare to Lead™ Facilitators. The programme is an opportunity to cultivate skills and practice the habits required to embody our authenticity day-by-day. The programme spans 10 weeks and comprises of an in-person session, at the beginning, followed by 6  online sessions. The periods in between sessions is an opportunity to integrate and practice insights and tools from the course.

Organiser Daring Europe

Organiser of The Gifts of Imperfection Programme (September- November 2021)

Ade Adeniji and Darren Brady are Certified Dare to Lead™️ and Daring Way™️ Facilitators. They facilitate Dare to Lead™️, Daring Greatly™️, Rising Strong™️ and Gifts of Imperfection™️ workshops, based on the research of Dr Brené Brown.

The workshops are designed for work with individuals, couples and families. During the process we explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, 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 shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.
