THE CALL TO COURAGE
With humour and empathy, Brené Brown discusses what it takes to choose courage over comfort. Having difficult conversations around issues in the workplace requires vulnerability and acknowledging that we will make mistakes and be uncomfortable. Vulnerability might lead to failure – or a career full of joy and love.
The ability to build trust is one of the core capabilities of any professional. The trust equation helps shed light on how to build trust with others through credibility, reliability and intimacy.
An excellent framework for giving feedback to those around you, regardless of their seniority: 'care personally' and 'challenge directly'.
