Brené Brown on How to Be Vulnerable

brene-brownAs part of our month-long celebration of our 300th-episode milestone, I’m revisiting some of my favourite, most provocative, most popular and most insightful Great Work Podcast conversations. I’m kicking things off with a riveting discussion I had with the great Brené Brown approximately five years ago, shortly after her first book was published.

Brené is the author of three #1 New York Times Bestsellers: Rising Strong, Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection.

Brené tackles some juicy emotional issues: vulnerability, courage, authenticity and shame. I’m inviting you to share your favourite quip or insight from this podcast for your chance to receive a gift from me. To participate in our 300th-episode celebration, either comment below or tweet me @BoxofCrayons with the hashtag #GWP300. Over the next four weeks, we’ll be randomly selecting 10 participants and sending them a coupon for a free ebook version of The Coaching Habit.

In this interview, we explore:

  • Why good work is vulnerable work . . . and how vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, love and joy.
  • How Brené stepped away from soul-sucking work and blazed her own path.
  • Creating connection and community: how a group called the Love Bombers profoundly changed Brené’s life.

    HI Michael,

    Love the selection you have presented us with as part of the 300th ep celebrations and congrats for getting this far. Looking forward to at least another 300!!

    Great podcast from Brene & Michael- you are both intellectually funny! Taking the struggles of life and adding some reality humour to it while making us feel that there is a ‘reason’ why we feel so overwhelmed all the time..and quite possibly having the soul sucked from us if there is no meaning to our work – reminding me of Carlos Casteneda – does this path have a heart? …and how the heck do we find out?! Very inspiring & your next comment should be an order for people to stop what they are doing & go find out! Especially if they are not feeling it with what they are doing now.
