Why Brave up?

When we are little, we understand and see clearly what bravery means, and are encouraged by our families and authority figures to be brave every single day, in order to grow and move forward.

As we mature, however, particularly for women, our bravery and courage goes underground. We become more focused on outer achievement, pleasing others, and grow more fear-driven and risk-averse, scared to speak up and stand up for what we want and believe. We lose connection to our authentic selves in pursuit of external goals that society and our “tribes” encourage but don’t necessarily align with our true values.  And in many cultures around the world, bravery in women is discouraged and even punished.

Based on 12 years of pioneering research, coaching and family therapy work with over 12,000 women around the world, Kathy Caprino, M.A. explores vital importance of bravely reconnecting to who we are at the deepest level, and why accessing more bravery is essential to a well-lived life.

She helps audiences recognize and honor their core passions, talents and gifts and values, as well understand their dominant action style, and learn to leverage these fully to live bravely, openly and powerfully. And she shares the top 5 regrets of midlife professionals and how to live, work, and connect with others to bypass these painful regrets.

In her talks, Caprino explains what a “Brave Up” life looks and feels like, versus living (as so many do) lives of quiet desperation, disconnected from their hearts, minds and spirits. She explores how to achieve brave leadership, brave work, brave parenting, and brave connection, helping people honor and make full use of their most authentic strengths and gifts in service of others and the world, to reach their most joyful visions for a meaningful, joyful life and livelihood.
