RISING STRONG

Summary

For the legions of fans of the #1 New York Times bestsellers Daring Greatly and The Gifts of Imperfection and her landmark TED talks on vulnerability and shame, comes the next step in the groundbreaking social research of thought leader Brene Brown, PhD. Rising Strong tells us what it takes to get back up after failure and teaches us how owning our stories of disappointment and heartbreak gives us the power to write a daring new ending.

With her bestselling books on the transformative gifts of shame and vulnerability, her inspiring call for wholehearted living, and her influential TED talks on shame and vulnerability which have garnered over 23 million views, Brene Brown has changed our cultural conversation. Her work has been embraced by Oprah Winfrey and corporate leaders alike making her a highly sought after public speaker. She has worked with organizations including Facebook, Microsoft, Pixar, AT&T, Costco, West Point, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, and many others. For Brene, the conversation about vulnerability and shame naturally evolves into a discussion of bravery—its origins, its catalysts, its chemistry. How we are brave. What constitutes bravery. What activates the impulse to be brave. And how to recognize where our own “hero’s journey” begins—in the depths of failure, disappointment, heartbreak, and grief—and how, once we grapple with our story, we are able to rise from those depths and determine how we want our story will end.
