Thank you again for setting me on a much braver path. I had the very new experience of starting a new job recently and it was a total “yes and” situation… I just walk in every day with “I have no idea what’s going to happen, and I’ll figure it out and have fun while doing it” and that is a COMPLETELY new mindset for me. So yeah – your class changed my entire life’s trajectory!

What happens at Be Brave Weekly?
Cohorts meet every week for one hour within a five-week program and stay connected on the go with a mobile coaching platform. Each week you’ll join your group of supportive peers in a playful workout of the mind, body and soul. We’ll practice being in a Mindset of Discovery: shifting your energy and attention from stress, fear or distraction to positive forward – movement, creativity, resourcefulness and human connection.
You will flex your creativity, communication, and collaboration muscles through group and individual exercises, all in an inspiring environment of undeniable support. Your weekly practice will make you a better problem solver, influencer, leader and human.
We’ll share key concepts to maintaining your creative growth, learn about how our brains, bodies and intuition work together in powerful ways, and practice tools and skills to help you overcome the resistance, fears and patterns that get in the way of being our best selves. And it’s the Brave New Workshop, so you’re guaranteed to have fun and meet lifelong friends along the way.
Who is Be Brave Weekly for?
Whether you are navigating through a change (job, relationship, move, our current reality), seeking some inspiration for your creative pursuits (parenting, woodworking, writing, singing), need to brush up on some skills (public speaking, presentations, brainstorming, networking), or simply want to give yourself a happy little kick in the pants, we welcome you!
This program is designed for adults (18+) and absolutely no experience is necessary.
I know Brave New Workshop is also a comedy theater. Do I have to be funny to take part?
No! Be Brave Weekly is not about comedy or being funny. It’s about spending time in a safe, fun environment and flexing your creative muscles with a group of like-minded brave learners. While many of the exercises we use are founded in our study of improvisation, we also utilize other time-tested tools and practices to ensure everyone feels confident to bring their authentic selves to the room.
Will I have to ‘perform’?
No! All sessions are active and interactive and group oriented, but you will not be asked to perform! We never put you on the spot in an uncomfortable way and everyone jumps in at the pace that works for them.
What happens in a typical session?
Each week will include a combination of group discussion, interactive exercises (yes, even virtually), personal reflection and tons of laughter and inspiration. Our facilitators are experts at creating the safe space needed for you to play and take risks.
Are you sure this is for me? This frankly makes me nervous.
It’s completely normal and human to be nervous anytime you put yourself out there and try something new. That’s just your brain protecting you. It’s also completely human to want to stretch, create and have fun. We’re here to support that. In fact, we believe everyone is creative and for 60+ years we’ve been creating experiences where humans of all walks of life can discover their best mindset and bravest, creative selves. So grab a friend, jump in and give it a try.
How many people have you worked with before?
We’ve been doing this a long time, in fact as long as anyone on the planet. We’ve worked with tens of thousands of individuals, groups and organizations to help humans break through fear and hesitation to discover their innate creative brilliance. We’re so honored to have worked with those people as they’ve reconnected with their authentic ingenuity and personal brave. In fact, we’ve never had a student fail.
If I’ve done something similar before or have done some improvisation, can I still join?
Yes! We believe growth and change come via regular practice. One of the main purposes of this program is to get you on your feet on a regular basis within a supportive group of similarly motivated people. Creativity, courage and connection are life-long pursuits and Be Brave Weekly is an inspiring way to keep that commitment to yourself. Whether you’re brand new or have practiced before, you will find benefit in each weekly session.
What if I’m not Tech Savy?
Don’t worry, you will receive detailed instructions and best practices before we start. We are also happy to be available a few minutes prior to the first session for orientation and to help you troubleshoot any issues.
Still not sure? Any other questions?
We’d love to connect! You can contact us via email [email protected]
What’s the refund policy? What if I have to miss a class?
You can receive full refund if you cancel seven days in advance. You can also transfer your registration to a later cohort. If you are going to miss any specific days, you can make those up in the next cohort as well. By the way, we guarantee our program and we think you’ll experience some personal wins if you commit to regular attendance. However, if you’ve given it your best shot and still didn’t find value, we will refund you 100%
It allows you to be open to new ideas in your everyday life, to be brave enough to jump into situations that you would not have previously, and to showcase your strengths that you might not even have been aware you had.
These classes are imbued with a spirit of curiosity and playfulness. Jenni (and team) is an extraordinary teacher who adroitly and skillfully created the environment of safety and team play. Gleaning from principles of improv theater, I learnt extremely valuable skills to improve communication, foster connections and teamwork. These classes have energized seeming banality of my day to day life and catapulted me in a positive “Yes, and” mindset and without doubt increasing joy in my everyday contact with others. As a physician, I am perpetually amazed at the power of my improv tool-kit, that regularly and profoundly affects my critical conversations. I whole heartedly recommend anyone and everyone looking to energize their connections!
From a health perspective, I couldn’t do anything better for my brain than challenging it in such a supportive environment.
Let the Brave New Workshop create a custom cohort program for your team!
Here’s the thing … in my 13 years at Target I have never been in a training as illuminating and fun as yesterday. For real. And, I know the team feels the same way. We left inspired and more bonded, full of ideas on how we practice micro-behaviors to ultimately change our own mindset and influence others.
