Atlas of the Heart

Author: Brené Brown Format: Audiobook Release Date: 14/02/2022

In her latest book, five-time #1 New York Times bestselling author Dr Brené Brown, writes, "If we want to find the way back to ourselves and each other, we need language and the grounded confidence to both tell our stories, and to be stewards of the stories that we hear. This is the framework for meaningful connection." In Atlas of the Heart, Brown takes us on a journey through 87 of the emotions and experiences that define what it means to be human. As she maps the necessary skills and lays out an actionable framework for meaningful connection, she gives us the language and tools to access a universe of new choices and second chances - a universe where we can share and steward the stories of our bravest and most heart-breaking moments with one another in a way that builds connection. Over the past two decades, Brown's extensive research into the experiences that make us who we are has shaped the cultural conversation and helped define what it means to be courageous with our lives. Atlas of the Heart draws on this research, as well as Brown's singular skills as a researcher/storyteller, to lay out an invaluable, research-based framework that shows us that naming an experience doesn't give the experience more power, it gives us the power of understanding, meaning and choice. Brown shares, "I want this to be an atlas for all of us, because I believe that, with an adventurous heart and the right maps, we can travel anywhere and never fear losing ourselves. Even when we have no idea where we are."

Dare to Lead

Dare to Lead

Author: Brene Brown Format: Paperback Release Date: 11/10/2018

In her #1 NYT bestsellers, Brene 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. 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 and work to align authority and accountability. We don't avoid difficult conversations and situations; we lean into the vulnerability that's necessary to do good work. But daring leadership in a culture that's defined by scarcity, fear and uncertainty requires building courage skills, which are uniquely human. The irony is that we're choosing not to invest in developing the hearts and minds of leaders at the same time we're scrambling to figure out what we have to offer that machines can't do better and faster. What can we do better? Empathy, connection and courage to start. Brene Brown spent the past two decades researching the emotions that give meaning to our lives. Over the past seven years, she found that leaders in organisations ranging from small entrepreneurial start-ups and family-owned businesses to non-profits, civic organisations and Fortune 50 companies, are asking the same questions: How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders? And, how do you embed the value of courage in your culture? Dare to Lead answers these questions and gives us actionable strategies and real examples from her new research-based, courage-building programme. Brene writes, 'One of the most important findings of my career is that courage can be taught, developed and measured. Courage is a collection of four skill sets supported by twenty-eight behaviours. All it requires is a commitment to doing bold work, having tough conversations and showing up with our whole hearts. Easy? No. Choosing courage over comfort is not easy. Worth it? Always. We want to be brave with our lives and work. It's why we're here.'

Braving the Wilderness

Braving the Wilderness

Author: Brene Brown Format: Paperback Release Date: 12/09/2017

A timely and important new book that challenges everything we think we know about cultivating true belonging in our communities, organizations, and culture, from the #1 bestselling author of Rising Strong, Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfection. 'True belonging doesn't require us to change who we are. It requires us to be who we are.' Social scientist Brene Brown, PhD, LMSW has sparked a global conversation about the experiences that bring meaning to our lives - experiences of courage, vulnerability, love, belonging, shame and empathy. In Braving the Wilderness, Brown redefines what it means to truly belong in an age of increased polarisation. With her trademark mix of research, storytelling and honesty, Brown will again change the cultural conversation while mapping out a clear path to true belonging. Brown argues that what we're experiencing today is a spiritual crisis of disconnection, and introduces four practices of true belonging that challenge everything we believe about ourselves and each other. She writes, 'True belonging requires us to believe in and belong to ourselves so fully that we can find sacredness both in both being a part of something, and in standing alone when necessary. But in a culture that's rife with perfectionism and pleasing, and with the erosion of civility, it's easy to stay quiet, hide in our ideological bunkers, or fit in rather than show up as our true selves and brave the wilderness of uncertainty and criticism. But true belonging is not something we negotiate or accomplish with others; it's a daily practice that demands integrity and authenticity. It's a personal commitment that we carry in our hearts.' Brown offers us the clarity and courage we need to find our way back to ourselves and to each other. And that path cuts right through the wilderness. Brown writes, 'The wilderness is an untamed, unpredictable place of solitude and searching. It is a place as dangerous as it is breathtaking, a place as sought after as it is feared. But it turns out to be the place of true belonging, and it's the bravest and most sacred place you will ever stand.'

Researcher and thought leader Dr. Brene 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 RooseveltEvery 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 truthand trustin our organizations, families, schools, and communities.

Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice

Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice

Author: Brene Brown Format: CD-Audio Release Date: 01/06/2017

Spirituality-How It Makes Us Stronger With her previous bestsellers, Dr. Brene Brown helped us realize that vulnerability is the birthplace for trust, courage, joy, creativity, and love. Yet a willingness to be vulnerable means accepting that life will sometimes knock us down. Where do we find the strength to get back up? In her research on resilient people, Brene discovered a key factor. Without exception, she says, the concept of spirituality emerged from the data as a critical component of resilience and overcoming struggle. On Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice, Brene offers an in-depth exploration of this key aspect of wholehearted living, including: * The spiritual dimension of the Rising Strong process: the Reckoning, the Rumble, and the Revolution * A sense of belonging-how spirituality encourages us to be ourselves instead of trying to change in order to fit in * Why the sense of perspective provided by a spiritual practice helps us find meaning and purpose * Are we doing the best we can? -How faith in humanity can help us become more compassionate and less judgmental * Why the spiritual understanding of death and rebirth are invaluable in the process of forgiveness On Rising Strong as a Spiritual Practice, Brene defines spirituality as something not reliant on religion, theology, or dogma-rather, it is a belief in our interconnectedness and in a loving force greater than ourselves. Whether you access the sacred through traditional worship, solitary meditation, communion with nature, or creative pursuits, one thing is clear: cultivating your own approach to spirituality gives you an irreplaceable resource to help you persevere through hard times and arise stronger and wiser than before.

**Now on Netflix as The Call to Courage** 'She's so good, Brene Brown, at finding the language to articulate collective feeling' Dolly Alderton Every time we are faced with change, no matter how great or small, we also face risk. We feel uncertain and exposed. We feel vulnerable. Most of us try to fight those feelings - or feel guilt for feeling them in the first place. In a powerful new vision Dr Brene 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. Daring Greatly is the culmination of 12 years of groundbreaking social research, across every area of our lives including home, relationships, work, and parenting. It is an invitation to be courageous; to show up and let ourselves be seen, even when there are no guarantees. This is vulnerability. This is daring greatly.

Struggle can be our greatest call to courage and Rising Strong, our clearest path to deeper meaning, wisdom and hope.

Dr. Brene Brown's Ten Guideposts to Wholehearted Families We all know that perfect parenting does not exist, yet we still struggle with the social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. These messages are powerful and we end up spending precious time and energy managing perception and the carefully edited versions of the families we show to the world. On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brene 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 10 guideposts to creating what she describes as wholehearted families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential, including: Cultivating worthiness in families-the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging * Vulnerability-the key to true connection * Engaging in creativity and play as a family * Practicing gratitude and joy in the home * Respect and hard work in a culture of fun, fast, and easy It's actually our ability to embrace imperfection that will help us teach our children to have the courage to be authentic, the compassion to love themselves and others, and the sense of connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life, states Dr. Brown. The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting is a practical and hopeful program for raising children who know that they are worthy of love, belonging, and joy. Course objectives: Discuss how to cultivate worthiness in families-the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging * Explain how to engage in creativity and play as a family * Discuss how to cultivate a practice of gratitude and joy in the home * Explain the value of respect and hard work within a culture of fun, fast, and easy * Discuss how to embrace imperfection as a parent and how to teach our children to have the courage to be authentic and compassionate

We Are Enough: Engaging with the World from a Place of Worthiness Course objectives: Summarize the differences and similarities between the experience of shame for men and women * Define guilt vs. shame-why one is a useful force for growth, while the other keeps us small * Discuss the four elements of shame resilience-identifying our triggers, practicing critical awareness, sharing our story, and speaking honestly about shame * Discuss empathy as the primary antidote to shame What does it take to be secure in our sense of belonging and self-worth? We may hustle to attain this security through achievements, meeting expectations, or repeating affirmations to ourselves-but Dr. Brene Brown's research has shown there is ultimately one obstacle to our sense of worthiness. Shame is the barrier, she teaches, and building shame resilience is how we overcome it. With Men, Women, and Worthiness, Dr. Brown draws upon more than 12 years of investigation to reveal how we can disarm the influence of shame to cultivate a life of greater courage, joy, and love. In this rich and heartfelt examination of this pivotal element of happiness, she invites you to explore: The differences and similarities between the experience of shame for men and women * Guilt vs. shame-why one is a useful force for growth, while the other keeps us small * The four elements of shame resilience-identifying our triggers, practicing critical awareness, sharing our story, and speaking honestly about shame * Empathy as the primary antidote to shame Whether you are a man, woman, or child, every one of us has the irreducible need for love and belonging, Dr. Brown teaches. A sense of self-worth, unhindered by the inner voices of shame, allows us to meet that need. With the warmth, candor, and humor that has made her a celebrated speaker, Brene Brown offers a road map for navigating the emotions that hold us back-so we can cultivate a life of authenticity and connection.

Power of Vulnerability

Power of Vulnerability

Author: Brene Brown Format: CD-Audio Release Date: 15/11/2012

Show Up and Let Yourself be Seen Is vulnerability the same as weakness? In our culture, teaches Dr. Brene Brown, we associate vulnerability with emotions we want to avoid such as fear, shame, and uncertainty. Yet we too often lose sight of the fact that vulnerability is also the birthplace of joy, belonging, creativity, authenticity, and love. On The Power of Vulnerability, Dr. Brown offers an invitation and a promise-that when we dare to drop the armor that protects us from feeling vulnerable, we open ourselves to the experiences that bring purpose and meaning to our lives. Here she dispels the cultural myth that vulnerability is weakness and reveals that it is, in truth, our most accurate measure of courage. The Power of Vulnerability is a very personal project for me, Brene explains. This is the first place that all of my work comes together. This audio course draws from all three of my books-it's the culmination of everything I've learned over the past 12 years. I'm very excited to weave it all into a truly comprehensive form that shows what these findings and insights can mean in our lives. Guidance and Insights for Wholehearted Living Over the past 12 years, Dr. Brene Brown has interviewed hundreds of people as part of an ongoing study of vulnerability. The research shows that we try to ward disappointment with a shield of cynicism, disarm shame by numbing ourselves against joy, and circumvent grief by shutting off our willingness to love, explains Dr. Brown. When we become aware of these patterns, she teaches, we begin to become conscious of how much we sacrifice in the name of self-defense-and how much richer our lives become when we open ourselves to vulnerability. In my research, Dr. Brown says, the word I use to describe people who can live from a place of vulnerability is wholehearted. Being wholehearted is a practice-one that we can choose to cultivate through empathy, gratitude, and awareness of our vulnerability armor. Join this engaging and heartfelt teacher on The Power of Vulnerability as she offers profound insights on leaning into the full spectrum of emotions-so we can show up, let ourselves be seen, and truly be all in. Highlights: Cultivating shame resilience-the key to developing a sense of worth and belonging * Vulnerability as the origin point for innovation, adaptability, accountability, and visionary leadership * Our emotional armory-how we use perfectionism, numbing, and other tactics to avoid feeling vulnerable * The myths of vulnerability-common misconceptions about weakness, trust, and self-sufficiency * Discovering your vulnerability armor-recognizing what makes us shut down, and how we can change * The 10 guideposts of wholehearted living-essential skills for becoming fully engaged in life * Six hours of stories, warm humor, and transformative insights for living a life of courage, authenticity, and compassion from Dr. Brene Brown Course objectives: Recognize emotional armory and recognizing what makes us shut down-how we use perfectionism, numbing, and other tactics to avoid feeling vulnerable * Discussing the cultivation of shame resilience--the key to developing a sense of worth and belonging * Discussing the myths of vulnerability-common misconceptions about weakness, trust, and self-sufficiency * Defining vulnerability as the origin point for innovation, adaptability, accountability, and visionary leadership * Summarizing the 10 guideposts of wholehearted living-essential skills for living a life of courage, authenticity, and compassion
