“If you put shame in a Petri dish, it needs three things to grow exponentially: secrecy, silence, and judgement. If you put the same amount of shame in a Petri dish and douse it with empathy–it can’t survive.”
- Brene Brown
A while back I shared Brene Brown’s excellent TED Talk on vulnerability with you.
I thought her follow up TED Talk on shame was just as important, if not more so, than her first.
As always, the talk speaks for itself.
