About "The Power of Vulnerability"
 
Brene Brown isn’t an engineer, but her work is relevant to any engineer who aspires to lead herself or others. In this talk, she discusses how strongly shame, and particularly a sense of “not being worthy” (aka imposter syndrome) is directly correlated to our sense of belonging and connection within a group. She notes that those who feel worthy, “have the courage to be imperfect”, “have the compassion to be kind to themselves and others,” and they “have connection as a result of authenticity.”
 
This talk is funny, engaging, relevant, and eye-opening for anyone who has experienced the feeling of not being good enough. It’s one to share with both your engineer and non-engineer friends.
