It’s been a while since I made a book review video, I know. But today I get to do just that - and if you know me, you’ll know talking books is one of my favourite things to do!
The book, Daring Greatly, by Brené Brown was introduced to me earlier this year by Liz, one of the people in my speaker’s mastermind group. We had been talking about the value of being willing to share your some of your most intimate and personal stories and what doing that could add to the way people relate to and experience authenticity in your speaker, coaching or training type business.
Obviously, the subtitle to Daring Greatly...How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way You Live, Love, Parent, and Lead should give a clue as to the nature of this book.
So, book purchased from Foyles [my favourite bookshop in London], I began to read, and immediately begin to feel both the insight and incredible sense of connection with the teachings and observations of Brené Brown.
In reading, it also reminded me of the advice one of my speaker mentors gave many years ago,
'One of the greatest strengths that you can have as a speaker is to show your vulnerability, is to share some sense of your vulnerability.'
This book shows you how.
Brené also heads up the 2nd most viewed TEDTalk EVER, called The Power of Vulnerability, and I’d encourage you to check it out here.
Believe me, in the book, and also in her TEDTalk you'll feel her passion for life AND her vulnerability [which is ultimately a strength, not a weakness].
There’s more insight and observation in my book review video, so if you haven’t watched already, I’d encourage you to do so now.
Until next time, I’m wishing you my best.
