Pardee Properties champions the women in our city and beyond who are rising up to make the world a better place. One of these fierce, powerful women on a mission who helps people live a more purpose-driven life is researcher and storyteller, Dr. Brené Brown.
We recently watched Dr. Brown’s TED Talk “The Power of Vulnerability” at a team meeting and were completely inspired. After 12 years of studying the concept of shame, Dr. Brown discovered that the only way to overcome it is through human connection and vulnerability. She asserts that in order for us to experience connection, we have to allow ourselves to be seen…really seen. She goes on to tell her audience that the key to vulnerability is believing that you are worthy of love and belonging. We wholeheartedly respect her mission to share the importance of embracing vulnerability and have the courage to share who you are with your whole heart. Living with this outlook can be life-changing.
Dr. Brown’s insight on how to connect with people and live a more meaningful life is something that truly inspires us to continue empowering our clients and community to live life to the absolute fullest.
Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work and is also the author of two #1 New York Times Bestsellers: Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection.
