In her number one NYT best sellers, Brené Brown 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 power over people. Leaders are people who hold themselves accountable for recognising the potential in people and ideas and developing that potential. This is a book for everyone who is ready to choose courage over comfort, make a difference and lead.

lots of relatable and usable info. I've already started sharing the concepts with colleagues, and recommending the book title to everyone that will listen.

I'm looking forward to listening again, to fill in some gaps and get a greater grasp and understanding.

I've also bought the hard copy book, and I'm glad to know that extra resources are available online, to help implement the strategies defined within.

  • The Explosive Child

  • A New Approach for Understanding and Parenting Easily Frustrated, Chronically Inflexible Children

Dr. Ross Greene, a distinguished clinician and pioneer in the treatment of kids with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges, has worked with thousands of explosive children, and he has good news: these kids aren't attentionseeking, manipulative, or unmotivated, and their parents aren't passive, permissive disciplinarians. Rather, explosive kids are lacking some crucial skills in the domains of flexibility/adaptability, frustration tolerance, and problem solving, and they require a different approach.

  • Daring Greatly

  • How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead

In a powerful new vision, Dr. Brené Brown challenges everything we think we know about vulnerability and dispels the widely accepted myth that it's a weakness. She argues that, in truth, vulnerability is strength, and when we shut ourselves off from vulnerability - from revealing our true selves - we distance ourselves from the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives.

On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brené Brown invites us on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike. Drawing on her 12 years of research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, she presents ten guideposts to creating what she describes as "wholehearted" families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential.

I'm very much a story person, so really I appreciated, and resonated with the many real life examples that Brené shared.

I'm very sad that the book ended- I finished it in a day! this was probbaly very surprising for me as I'm not a reader- I have little time with 3 kids, homeschooling, and studying a masters degree... So one might imagine that doesn't give me much free time left to sit and read, but a great, captivating audio recording means that I was able to listen while preparing meals & while driving instead of listening to the radio.

The intermittent background music detracts from the book and is highly distracting, annoying, and makes it harder to get into, or stay engaged.

Please record it again, without music.
