Belonging, Courage, and Vulnerability

About Brené Brown

Vulnerability, shame, failure. These aren’t the things we like to think about in ourselves. But for Brené Brown they are the focus of her attention. As a research professor and business leader she ha studied how being vulnerable could make us more courageous, and empathetic. More true to our humanity. In her new book, Braving the Wilderness, Brené Brown calls on us to move closer to each other, because people are hard to hate close up. To speak truth to bullshit, but be civil. To hold hands with strangers.
