Rising Strong describes a 3-phase process of bouncing back from failure, which you can implement both in your own life and as a team or company, in order to embrace setbacks as part of life, deal with your emotions, confront your own ideas and rise stronger every time.

The book is available through amazon.com and often at local book stores. Participants are responsible for obtaining and reading the book prior to the dialogue.

Athenian Dialogues are 6-hour educational events that allow participants to explore leadership theory, practice, and principles. In the context of Rising Strong, participants will discuss the book’s themes and key ideas, and apply that information to their role as a leader in their community and municipal organization.

The facilitator for this Athenian Dialogue is Nikki Brummond, Clerk/Finance Officer for the City of Lewistown.
