Brené Brown: Listening to shame

– After her awesome 2010 TEDxHouston talk on vulnerability went viral, with close to 4 million views, Brown was invited to speak at the main TED conference in Long Beach this year. With warm humour she describes what happened in her life after becoming famous, while quick to point out she must “dance with the one you came with” and continue to talk about her research on shame, which led to conclusions on vulnerability, authenticity, and courage. A very quotable talk filled with nuggets of wisdom. For example: “Vulnerability is not weakness, and that myth is profoundly dangerous.” “Vulnerability is our most accurate measurement of courage.” Features an interactive transcript, and English subtitles.
