Everyone, meet Brene Brown. Brene, this is everyone.
For some time, I've been wanting to introduce you to one of my new heroes, Brene Brown. Brene is a shame researcher at the University of Houston and is the author of I Thought It Was Just Me: Women Reclaiming Power and Courage in a Culture of Shame. She was the reason I was in Houston a few weekends ago for a two-day workshop on shame and resilience. Anyway, I finally found a brief piece from Brene's blog that I think will give you a taste of why I find her work so fascinating. Here it is--enjoy.
