  • Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

    Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on 12 years of research, her book argues that vulnerability is not weakness but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection.

    Story

    I've gotten most of the Brene Brown learning materials I can get and it's all awesome and all on the same points of wholeheartedness, vulnerability, shame, leading ourselves, loving our friends and family, and (in this book more than any others) leading others. I would start with her two TED talks free online. Men, Women, and Worthiness also on audible and Sounds True is a good next good overview. Dating Greatly is her fullest book and covers everything I got out of both The Gifts of Imperfection and I Thought It Was Just Me. It's long but it's all good content and it's all high quality material. There's content here for everyone. I do wish Brene read this one too. It feels stronger coming from her with her intonations on all the personal stories as well. Overall, loved it and expect that I will come back to it a few times like I did with Gifts of Imperfection.
