    Brene?s gone corporate. The 99% of us who latched onto her as a hardworking mom and smart researcher who thought hard and fought her way through to some amazing, amazingly put insights... well, in my opinion, that lady is gone. In her place is a motivational speaker who is most inter...

    So, I really appreciate BrenÚ Brown. I love her books. I love her cussing (which she does in her talks more than her books) and, most of all, I love her staggering vulnerability and empathy. Dare To Lead continues her conquest of shame, dysfunction, ego, hate, indifference, and ev...

    It?s Brene Brown for your corporate retreat! I was turned off by the management speech, which I thought she said in the beginning she wouldn?t do (the temptation is great). I was also annoyed at the commodification of her vulnerability insights into cute little worlds. ?We?re g...

    I had a long drive to make this week and couldn't decide between buying this on audio or picking it up in print, and a friend suggested I listen to it on audio, then when it hits in paperback, buy that and mark it up. I think this was a great suggestion, and it was a nice reminder, too...

    I love Brene Brown, her first few books helped me a lot. Maybe I changed or she ran out of interesting new research to share, but I felt that this book didn?t give me too much. It felt like a reiteration of her previous findings but the examples are more relevant for managers. ...

    I love BrenÚ Brown! I didn?t love this book though. It felt like a repackaging of her previous works. ...

    One of my favorite things about BrenÚ Brown is her delivery. Her writing and conversational style is so easy to relate to and feels genuine. The skills and techniques reviewed in this book will help you formulate what kind of leader you want to be, giving you the tools to become a suc...

    I think this does what it is meant to well. It's a book that pulls together a lot of her other books and findings into one easily digestible source to prompt better connection and leadership within groups of people, mainly companies though she talks about school situations as well. Alt...

    Hmmm.. A number of women are coming next Sunday for an In Real Life Bookclub - and we are doing this non-fiction pairing special; The women were invited to read either Becoming by Michelle Obama, or Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. Or Both! Many to most are reading both. I thought it wo...

    This book combines Brene's (we're friends in my head) previous work and puts it in the context of being a strong, healthy leader. She takes her work on wholehearted living (Gifts of Imperfection), vulnerability & shame (Daring Greatly), the reckoning, rumble & revolution (Risin...

    I got quite a few good tips from this read, while others were just too time consuming. Lol. All in all, very helpful advice and strategies to apply towards my job and some even to my everyday personal life. ...

    I feel like I could read this 20 times and learn something new every-time. I like to listen to these kinds of books and she has activities to do on her websight. I feel like this book would take lots of time to pull apart and digest. I am not a leader in the business sense or even in t...

    This book helped me to try and understand my coworkers and to at least be more empathetic to where they are coming from. I still struggle with emotions in others, vulnerability and being compassionate to feelings I do not understand, but I think reading Brown's books have helped get me...

    I listened to this, and immediately listened to it again. Yep, that good. I love BrenÚ's work and research, I have found it so immeasurably helpful and pertinent in my life and my relatioships. This book focuses her work on shame and communication into a workplace arena more than a pe...

    With respect to BrenÚ Brown, I could not even finish this book; as the genre goes, it's probably a wonderful work. But I hate this genre of books and don't know why I continue to seek them out with the na´ve hope that I might find an exception to the rule. Attempting to read Dare to ...

    My first intro to Brene Brown and I just didn?t dig it. At all. I don?t know if all her books read like this or not but this was a major struggle for me. Read it for book club and honestly I think it would have been better if I had done audible because then it would have just been ...

    Definitely not my favorite Brene. This is the corporate version for sure, and lacks the insight and storytelling I most love her work for. A substantial portion of it is also resummarized from her previous books. ...

    Great principles. Should?ve been a TED talk or article. ...

    Well... now I can name and list my bad leadership habits. I?m a work in progress, people! ...

    Courage > Comfort. ...

    This was fine, but it felt like a rehash of her last three books. It would be a good place to start if you haven't read Daring Greatly or Braving the Wilderness. The only part that stood out to me was about empathy vs. sympathy. If you've been following Brown for a while you've probabl...

    A pretty good book about leadership. I appreciate what I learned here but definitely like her other books better. (Except Braving the Wilderness, that one didn?t resonate with me as much as the others). This author is very much worth your time. She has a great message. ...

    I liked this but it felt like it petered out a bit toward the end. ...

    I received this book from the goodreads giveaways. A very informative book on how to take down that armory. We are all vulnerable. it is hard to have confrontations with others or get our feelings out there. Brene' Brown gives good advice on how to get along with co-workers whether if ...

    That was incredible. I just ordered a print copy so I could re-read it, make notes, and highlight/underline things. There's so much greatness in this book. I'm so glad I decided to pick it up. ...

    I am wrestling with how to synthesize my thoughts on Dare to Lead. As an avid 5-year strong Brene fan with a vulnerability quote on my wall, I hate to say it, but she has started to drink her own Kool-Aid. This book is littered with self-promotion. It's also mainly a ploy for people to...

    Late to the Brene Brown train and shame on me for it. See what I did there overtly talking about shame. But seriously, there were so many interesting points and takeaways that are backed by research. I found it all fascinating. Also listened to this as an audiobook, and would recommend...

    Definitely not my favorite Brene. This is the corporate version for sure, and lacks the insight and storytelling I most love her work for. A substantial portion of it is also resummarized from her previous books. ...

    Great principles. Should?ve been a TED talk or article. ...

    Well... now I can name and list my bad leadership habits. I?m a work in progress, people! ...

    Courage > Comfort. ...

    This was fine, but it felt like a rehash of her last three books. It would be a good place to start if you haven't read Daring Greatly or Braving the Wilderness. The only part that stood out to me was about empathy vs. sympathy. If you've been following Brown for a while you've probabl...

    A pretty good book about leadership. I appreciate what I learned here but definitely like her other books better. (Except Braving the Wilderness, that one didn?t resonate with me as much as the others). This author is very much worth your time. She has a great message. ...

    I liked this but it felt like it petered out a bit toward the end. ...

    I received this book from the goodreads giveaways. A very informative book on how to take down that armory. We are all vulnerable. it is hard to have confrontations with others or get our feelings out there. Brene' Brown gives good advice on how to get along with co-workers whether if ...

    That was incredible. I just ordered a print copy so I could re-read it, make notes, and highlight/underline things. There's so much greatness in this book. I'm so glad I decided to pick it up. ...

    I am wrestling with how to synthesize my thoughts on Dare to Lead. As an avid 5-year strong Brene fan with a vulnerability quote on my wall, I hate to say it, but she has started to drink her own Kool-Aid. This book is littered with self-promotion. It's also mainly a ploy for people to...

    Late to the Brene Brown train and shame on me for it. See what I did there overtly talking about shame. But seriously, there were so many interesting points and takeaways that are backed by research. I found it all fascinating. Also listened to this as an audiobook, and would recommend...

    Yes, there is a lot of repetitive material from previous books, but that's what I love - she brings it all together. I listened to the audiobook, and while that may make it more challenging to do the work, her personality add so much color to the stories that it is worth it. I'll proba...

    Have you ever felt like a book was speaking directly to everything you've always known to be true, but have never had the words for? That's how I felt reading Daring Greatly and Rising Strong. I encountered them at points of my life where I was undergoing changes that felt very brave a...

    Brene Brown repeats some of the same content from her previous books, but every time I read her, it is just the thing I needed to hear. ...

    Brene?s gone corporate. The 99% of us who latched onto her as a hardworking mom and smart researcher who thought hard and fought her way through to some amazing, amazingly put insights... well, in my opinion, that lady is gone. In her place is a motivational speaker who is most inter...

    So, I really appreciate BrenÚ Brown. I love her books. I love her cussing (which she does in her talks more than her books) and, most of all, I love her staggering vulnerability and empathy. Dare To Lead continues her conquest of shame, dysfunction, ego, hate, indifference, and ev...

    It?s Brene Brown for your corporate retreat! I was turned off by the management speech, which I thought she said in the beginning she wouldn?t do (the temptation is great). I was also annoyed at the commodification of her vulnerability insights into cute little worlds. ?We?re g...

    I had a long drive to make this week and couldn't decide between buying this on audio or picking it up in print, and a friend suggested I listen to it on audio, then when it hits in paperback, buy that and mark it up. I think this was a great suggestion, and it was a nice reminder, too...

    I love Brene Brown, her first few books helped me a lot. Maybe I changed or she ran out of interesting new research to share, but I felt that this book didn?t give me too much. It felt like a reiteration of her previous findings but the examples are more relevant for managers. ...

    I love BrenÚ Brown! I didn?t love this book though. It felt like a repackaging of her previous works. ...

    One of my favorite things about BrenÚ Brown is her delivery. Her writing and conversational style is so easy to relate to and feels genuine. The skills and techniques reviewed in this book will help you formulate what kind of leader you want to be, giving you the tools to become a suc...

    I think this does what it is meant to well. It's a book that pulls together a lot of her other books and findings into one easily digestible source to prompt better connection and leadership within groups of people, mainly companies though she talks about school situations as well. Alt...

    Hmmm.. A number of women are coming next Sunday for an In Real Life Bookclub - and we are doing this non-fiction pairing special; The women were invited to read either Becoming by Michelle Obama, or Dare to Lead by Brene Brown. Or Both! Many to most are reading both. I thought it wo...

    This book combines Brene's (we're friends in my head) previous work and puts it in the context of being a strong, healthy leader. She takes her work on wholehearted living (Gifts of Imperfection), vulnerability & shame (Daring Greatly), the reckoning, rumble & revolution (Risin...

    I got quite a few good tips from this read, while others were just too time consuming. Lol. All in all, very helpful advice and strategies to apply towards my job and some even to my everyday personal life. ...

    I feel like I could read this 20 times and learn something new every-time. I like to listen to these kinds of books and she has activities to do on her websight. I feel like this book would take lots of time to pull apart and digest. I am not a leader in the business sense or even in t...

    This book helped me to try and understand my coworkers and to at least be more empathetic to where they are coming from. I still struggle with emotions in others, vulnerability and being compassionate to feelings I do not understand, but I think reading Brown's books have helped get me...

    I listened to this, and immediately listened to it again. Yep, that good. I love BrenÚ's work and research, I have found it so immeasurably helpful and pertinent in my life and my relatioships. This book focuses her work on shame and communication into a workplace arena more than a pe...

    My first intro to Brene Brown and I just didn?t dig it. At all. I don?t know if all her books read like this or not but this was a major struggle for me. Read it for book club and honestly I think it would have been better if I had done audible because then it would have just been ...

    Definitely not my favorite Brene. This is the corporate version for sure, and lacks the insight and storytelling I most love her work for. A substantial portion of it is also resummarized from her previous books. ...

    Great principles. Should?ve been a TED talk or article. ...

    Brene?s gone corporate. The 99% of us who latched onto her as a hardworking mom and smart researcher who thought hard and fought her way through to some amazing, amazingly put insights... well, in my opinion, that lady is gone. In her place is a motivational speaker who is most inter...

    So, I really appreciate BrenÚ Brown. I love her books. I love her cussing (which she does in her talks more than her books) and, most of all, I love her staggering vulnerability and empathy. Dare To Lead continues her conquest of shame, dysfunction, ego, hate, indifference, and ev...

    It?s Brene Brown for your corporate retreat! I was turned off by the management speech, which I thought she said in the beginning she wouldn?t do (the temptation is great). I was also annoyed at the commodification of her vulnerability insights into cute little worlds. ?We?re g...

    I love Brene Brown, her first few books helped me a lot. Maybe I changed or she ran out of interesting new research to share, but I felt that this book didn?t give me too much. It felt like a reiteration of her previous findings but the examples are more relevant for managers. ...

    This book combines Brene's (we're friends in my head) previous work and puts it in the context of being a strong, healthy leader. She takes her work on wholehearted living (Gifts of Imperfection), vulnerability & shame (Daring Greatly), the reckoning, rumble & revolution (Risin...

    A pretty good book about leadership. I appreciate what I learned here but definitely like her other books better. (Except Braving the Wilderness, that one didn?t resonate with me as much as the others). This author is very much worth your time. She has a great message. ...

    I liked this but it felt like it petered out a bit toward the end. ...

    I received this book from the goodreads giveaways. A very informative book on how to take down that armory. We are all vulnerable. it is hard to have confrontations with others or get our feelings out there. Brene' Brown gives good advice on how to get along with co-workers whether if ...

    Yes, there is a lot of repetitive material from previous books, but that's what I love - she brings it all together. I listened to the audiobook, and while that may make it more challenging to do the work, her personality add so much color to the stories that it is worth it. I'll proba...

    This book combines Brene's (we're friends in my head) previous work and puts it in the context of being a strong, healthy leader. She takes her work on wholehearted living (Gifts of Imperfection), vulnerability & shame (Daring Greatly), the reckoning, rumble & revolution (Risin...

    I got quite a few good tips from this read, while others were just too time consuming. Lol. All in all, very helpful advice and strategies to apply towards my job and some even to my everyday personal life. ...

    This book helped me to try and understand my coworkers and to at least be more empathetic to where they are coming from. I still struggle with emotions in others, vulnerability and being compassionate to feelings I do not understand, but I think reading Brown's books have helped get me...

    I listened to this, and immediately listened to it again. Yep, that good. I love BrenÚ's work and research, I have found it so immeasurably helpful and pertinent in my life and my relatioships. This book focuses her work on shame and communication into a workplace arena more than a pe...

    Brene?s gone corporate. The 99% of us who latched onto her as a hardworking mom and smart researcher who thought hard and fought her way through to some amazing, amazingly put insights... well, in my opinion, that lady is gone. In her place is a motivational speaker who is most inter...

    So, I really appreciate BrenÚ Brown. I love her books. I love her cussing (which she does in her talks more than her books) and, most of all, I love her staggering vulnerability and empathy. Dare To Lead continues her conquest of shame, dysfunction, ego, hate, indifference, and ev...

    It?s Brene Brown for your corporate retreat! I was turned off by the management speech, which I thought she said in the beginning she wouldn?t do (the temptation is great). I was also annoyed at the commodification of her vulnerability insights into cute little worlds. ?We?re g...

    I had a long drive to make this week and couldn't decide between buying this on audio or picking it up in print, and a friend suggested I listen to it on audio, then when it hits in paperback, buy that and mark it up. I think this was a great suggestion, and it was a nice reminder, too...

    I love Brene Brown, her first few books helped me a lot. Maybe I changed or she ran out of interesting new research to share, but I felt that this book didn?t give me too much. It felt like a reiteration of her previous findings but the examples are more relevant for managers. ...

    With respect to BrenÚ Brown, I could not even finish this book; as the genre goes, it's probably a wonderful work. But I hate this genre of books and don't know why I continue to seek them out with the na´ve hope that I might find an exception to the rule. Attempting to read Dare to ...

    My first intro to Brene Brown and I just didn?t dig it. At all. I don?t know if all her books read like this or not but this was a major struggle for me. Read it for book club and honestly I think it would have been better if I had done audible because then it would have just been ...

    Definitely not my favorite Brene. This is the corporate version for sure, and lacks the insight and storytelling I most love her work for. A substantial portion of it is also resummarized from her previous books. ...

    Great principles. Should?ve been a TED talk or article. ...

    Well... now I can name and list my bad leadership habits. I?m a work in progress, people! ...

    Courage > Comfort. ...

    This was fine, but it felt like a rehash of her last three books. It would be a good place to start if you haven't read Daring Greatly or Braving the Wilderness. The only part that stood out to me was about empathy vs. sympathy. If you've been following Brown for a while you've probabl...

    A pretty good book about leadership. I appreciate what I learned here but definitely like her other books better. (Except Braving the Wilderness, that one didn?t resonate with me as much as the others). This author is very much worth your time. She has a great message. ...
