The Power of Trust 

One of the foundations of strong families and friendships is the powerful word TRUST. Although we intuitively know when we don't trust someone, conversations around trust can go sideways quickly. Brene Brown, a four-time #1 New York best selling author has developed the acronym BRAVING to break down trust into seven elements.

Join us as Jen Mauldin, a certified professional coach and Brené Brown facilitator, breaks down this big gauzy word to help strengthen trust in our families and friendships.
