Dr Brené Brown has spent the past twelve years carrying out ground-breaking research into vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.
A best-selling author and award-winning educator, Dr Brown’s books and talks have been hugely influential in tackling the myth that vulnerability is a weakness.
She argues that it is only by embracing vulnerability and imperfection that we can live life with courage and authenticity. Recognising and acting on this insight has the power to transform the way we engage in our families, organisations, schools and communities.
