Brene Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

Brene Brown, The Gifts of Imperfection

Brene Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston, with a bachelor’s, master’s and PhD in social work. She’s spent the past decade or so studying some juicy emotional issues — vulnerability, courage, authenticity and shame. Brene recently published a book called The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You’re Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are. In the book, she provides 10 guideposts to live a more authentic and wholesome life.

In this interview, we explore those guideposts and:

  • Why good work is vulnerable work … and how vulnerability is the birthplace of creativity, love and joy
  • How she stepped away from soul-sucking work and blazed her own path
  • Creating connection and community: how a group called the Love Bombers profoundly changed Brene’s life
