Emotions are an innate part of the human experience. Just because you step foot into an office or a meeting doesn’t mean you automatically let go of the emotions you carry with you outside of work. Our workplaces wouldn’t be very human if that were the case.
So how can we acknowledge and embrace even the challenging emotions – like vulnerability and shame? How can we create more human work environments that empower our people to be their true, authentic selves?
Today we are thrilled to formally announce that the expert on this subject – Dr. Brené Brown – will be a keynote speaker at WorkHuman 2018, April 3-5 in Austin, Texas.
Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation-Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work.
She has spent the past sixteen years studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy, and is the author of three #1 New York Times bestsellers – “The Gifts of Imperfection,” “Daring Greatly,” and “Rising Strong.” Her latest book, “Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and The Courage to Stand Alone,” will be released fall 2017.
