Brené Brown on Empathy

How do you respond when someone you lead shares something difficult or something that makes them vulnerable?

In this animated short, Dr Brené Brown (GLS 2013, 2015) reminds us that we can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough to really get in touch with our own painful experiences. 


Brené BrownDr. Brené Brown (GLS 2013, 2015) has spent the past 13 years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness and shame. With more than 18 million views, her 2010 TEDx Houston talk, The Power of Vulnerability, is one of the top five most viewed TED talks in the world. She is the author of #1 New York Times bestsellers: Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection. Brown’s newest book, Rising Strong, examines how falling down can be our greatest call to courage and why owning our stories of struggle gives us the power to write a daring new ending.
