Brené Brown on empathy

What is the best way to ease someone’s pain and suffering? In this beautifully animated short, Dr Brené Brown reminds us that we can only create a genuine empathic connection if we are brave enough really to be in touch with our own fragilities.

Dr Brené Brown is a research professor and best-selling author of Daring Greatly: How the Courage to be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, & Lead (Penguin Portfolio, 2013). She has spent many years studying vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame.
