The Power of Vulnerability

Vulnerability also known as Autheticity

Brené Brown became a household name through her message of stepping toward challenges instead of away from them and living life in the moment. And it’s a message that clearly resonates—she’s written four #1 New York Times bestsellers—The Gifts of ImperfectionDaring GreatlyRising Strong, and her latest book, Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and The Courage to Stand Alone.

Her 2010 TEDx talk, The Power of Vulnerability, has been watched more than 31 million times. Brown is also a research professor at the University of Houston, and her work is informed by the 16 years she’s spent studying courage, shame, empathy and vulnerability. She’s the founder of several organizations dedicated to helping people build courage, become better leaders and improve their lives through love and self-acceptance.

I absolutely loved her TedTalk and I think it’s important for women to recognize the power of vulnerability. Is there a TedTalk you want me to add to this list? Let me know in the comments down below.
