"The physics of vulnerability is simple: If we are brave enough often enough, we will fall. The author of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection tells us what it takes to get back up, and how owning our stories of disappointment, failure, and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending. Struggle, Brene Brown writes, can be our greatest call to courage, and rising strong our clearest path to a wholehearted life"--

In her #1 New York Times bestsellers, Brené Brown has taught us what it means to dare greatly, rise strong, and brave the wilderness. Now, based on new research conducted with leaders, change makers, and culture shifters, she’s showing us how to put those ideas into practice so we can step up and lead. Leadership is not about titles, status, and wielding power. A leader is anyone who takes responsibility for recognizing the potential in people and ideas, and has the courage to develop that potential. When we dare to lead, we don’t pretend to have the right answers; we stay curious and ask the right questions. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that power becomes infinite when we share it with others. We don’t avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into vulnerability when it’s necessary to do good work. But daring leadership in a culture defined by scarcity, fear, and uncertainty requires skill-building around traits that are deeply and uniquely human. The irony is that we’re choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the exact same time as we’re scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines and AI can’t do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection, and courage, to start. Four-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question: How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture? In this new book, Brown uses research, stories, and examples to answer these questions in the no-BS style that millions of readers have come to expect and love. Brown writes, “One of the most important findings of my career is that daring leadership is a collection of skills and practices that are 100 percent teachable. It’s learning and unlearning that requires brave work, tough conversations, and showing up with your whole heart. Easy? No. Because choosing courage over comfort is not always our default. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and our work. It’s why we’re here.” Whether you’ve read Daring Greatly and Rising Strong or you’re new to Brené Brown’s work, this book is for anyone who wants to step up and into brave leadership.

Consistently we encounter the vulnerability, dangers, and enthusiastic introduction that characterize being helpless or to set out extraordinarily. In light of twelve years of spearheading research, Dr. Brené Brown disperses the social myth that helplessness is shortcoming and contends that it is, in truth, our most precise measure of strength. Dark colored clarifies how helplessness is both the center of troublesome feelings like dread, despondency, and dissatisfaction, and the origin of adoration, having a place, euphoria, compassion, advancement, and imagination. She expresses: "When we stop ourselves from weakness, we remove ourselves from the encounters that convey reason and significance to our lives." Brave Greatly isn't tied in with winning or losing. It's about bravery. In this present reality where "never enough" overwhelms and feeling apprehensive has turned out to be second nature, helplessness is subversive. Awkward. It's even somewhat risky on occasion. Also, beyond a shadow of a doubt, putting ourselves out there implies there's a far more serious danger of getting condemned or feeling hurt. Yet, when we venture back and analyze our lives, we will find that nothing is as awkward, unsafe, and terrible as remaining outwardly of our lives looking in and pondering what it would resemble in the event that we had the strength to advance into the field-regardless of whether it's another relationship, an essential gathering, the innovative procedure, or a troublesome family discussion. Brave Greatly is a training and an effective new vision for giving ourselves a chance to be seen.

Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brené Brown offers a powerful new vision that encourages us to dare greatly: to embrace vulnerability and imperfection, to live wholeheartedly, and to courageously engage in our lives. “It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; . . . who at best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” —Theodore Roosevelt Every day we experience the uncertainty, risks, and emotional exposure that define what it means to be vulnerable, or to dare greatly. Whether the arena is a new relationship, an important meeting, our creative process, or a difficult family conversation, we must find the courage to walk into vulnerability and engage with our whole hearts. In Daring Greatly, Dr. Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability. Based on twelve years of research, she argues that vulnerability is not weakness, but rather our clearest path to courage, engagement, and meaningful connection. The book that Dr. Brown’s many fans have been waiting for, Daring Greatly will spark a new spirit of truth—and trust—in our organizations, families, schools, and communities. Review ''A wonderful book: urgent, essential and fun to read. I couldn't put it down, and it continues to resonate with me.'' --Seth Godin, New York Times bestselling author ''The brilliantly insightful Brene Brown draws upon extensive research and personal experience to explore the paradoxes of courage: we become strong by embracing vulnerability, we dare more greatly when we acknowledge our fear. I can't stop thinking about this book.'' --Gretchen Rubin, New York Times bestselling author ''In Daring Greatly, Brene Brown refers to herself as both a mapmaker and a traveler. In my book, that makes her a guide. And I believe the world needs more guides like her who are showing us a wiser way to our inner world. If you'd like to set your course on being more courageous and connected, engaged and resilient, leave the GPS at home. Daring Greatly is all the navigation you'll need.'' --Maria Shriver, New York Times bestselling author ''Daring Greatly is an important book--a timely warning about the danger of pursuing certainty and control above all. Brene Brown offers all of us a valuable guide to the real reward of vulnerability: greater courage.'' --Daniel H. Pink, New York Times bestselling author ''What I find remarkable about this book is the unique combination of solid research and kitchen table storytelling. Brene becomes such a real person in the book that you can actually hear her voice asking, ''Have you dared greatly today?'' The invitation in this book is clear: We must be larger than anxiety, fear, and shame if we want to speak, act, and show up. The world needs this book and Brene's unique blend of warmth, humor, and ass-kicking makes her the perfect person to inspire us to dare greatly.'' --Harriet Lerner, PhD, New York Times bestselling author ''I deeply trust Brene Brown--her research, her intelligence, her integrity, and her personhood. So when she definitively lands on the one most important value we can cultivate for professional success, relationship health, parental joy, and courageous, passionate living . . . well, I sit up and take notice. And even when that one most critical value turns out to be the risky act of being vulnerable. Brene dared greatly to write this book, and you will benefit greatly to read it and to put its razor-sharp wisdom into action in your own life and work.'' --Elizabeth Lesser, New York Times bestselling author and cofounder of the Omega Institute ''One of the tragic ironies of modern life is that so many people feel isolated from each other by the very feelings they have in common: including a fear of failure and a sense of not being enough. Brene Brown shines a bright light into these dark recesses of human emotion and reveals how these feelings can gnaw at fulfillment in education, at work, and in the home. She shows too how they can be transformed to help us live more wholehearted lives of courage, engagement, and purpose. Brene Brown writes as she speaks, with wisdom, wit, candor, and a deep sense of humanity. If you're a student, teacher, parent, employer, employee, or just alive and wanting to live more fully, you should read this book. I double dare you.'' --Sir Ken Robinson, New York Times bestselling author ''In an age of constant pressure to conform and pretend, Daring Greatly offers a compelling alternative: transform your life by being who you really are. Embrace the courage to be vulnerable. Dare to read this book!'' --Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author ''Here's the essence of this book: vulnerability is courage in you but inadequacy in me. Brene's book, weaving together research and Texan anecdote, shows you some paths forward. And don't for a moment think this is only for women. Men carry the burden of Being Strong and Never Weak, and we pay a heavy price for it. Daring Greatly can help us all.'' --Michael Bungay Stanier, author of Do More Great Work ''In an age of constant pressure to conform and pretend, Daring Greatly offers a compelling alternative: transform your life by being who you really are.
