Brene Brown on Vulnerability – Take 2

In past posts I’ve mentioned one of my favorite TED Talks, one by Brene Brown, a PhD researcher who studies, among other things, vulnerability (click to watch video). In addition to enjoying her speaking style I really enjoy how she discusses her research on vulnerability and applies her findings (and the process of researching) applies to her own life.

Now Dr. Brown has a follow up TED Talk on shame (click to watch video).  She relates her experiences that resulted from her first TED Talk.  I hope you take a minute to watch it. If you haven’t seen her talk on vulnerability, watch it first.  Then follow up with her latest talk. I hope you’ll find them as meaningful as I do.

  1. Thanks for this. I hadn’t been aware of Brene Brown before, but was bowled over by her talks – she’s able to bring depth, humour and astuteness to what can be difficult topics.
