I stumbled across this TED talk recently by Brené Brown. No, I’d not hear of her before either. Her website says that she is..
“research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work. She has spent the past ten years studying vulnerability, courage, authenticity, and shame. Brené spent the first five years of her decade-long study focusing on shame and empathy, and is now using that work to explore a concept that she calls Wholeheartedness.”
This clip had me going “yes, yes, yes, yes!” and has informed and confirmed exactly what my next book is going to be about.
Authenticity, shame and the power of our story.
Enjoy Brené’s TED talk.
