Dr Brené Brown | RSA Short – TRANSCEND Media Service

What is the best way to ease someone’s pain and suffering? We can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough to really get in touch with our own fragility. Dr Brené Brown is a researcher, professor, and the author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent and Lead. She has spent the past decade studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.
