Brooke’s pick for a great TEDx Talk – Brené Brown: The power of vul­ner­ab­il­ity (TEDx­Hou­s­ton)

As we’ve done in pre­vi­ous years, the team is going to be post­ing here reg­u­larly in the lead up toTEDx­Can­berra 2012 so that you, our com­mu­nity, can get to know us a lit­tle bet­ter.

For my talk, I have chosen Brené Brown’s talk on the The Power of Vul­ner­ab­il­ityfrom TEDx­Hou­s­ton.

The self-titled “Researcher Storyteller” provides very humor­ous recount of her per­sonal and pro­fes­sional jour­ney to unpack con­nec­tion. Study­ing thou­sands of peoples stor­ies – includ­ing her own – Brene dis­cov­ers that vul­ner­ab­il­ity is at the core of shame and fear but also the birth­place of wor­thi­ness, belong­ing and con­nec­tion.

For me, Brené’s talk is enga­ging, insight­ful and empower­ing as she aims to change per­cep­tions of vul­ner­ab­il­ity being syn­onym­ous with weak­ness to being syn­onym­ous with cour­age.
