I’ve spent over 20 years studying the emotions and experiences that bring meaning and purpose to our lives, and if there’s one thing I’ve learned it’s this: We are hardwired for connection, and connecting requires courage, vulnerability, and conversation. I want this to be a podcast that’s real, unpolished, honest, and reflects both the magic and the messiness of what it means to be human. Episodes will include conversations with the people who are teaching me, challenging me, confusing me, or maybe even ticking me off a little. I'll also have direct conversations with you about what I’m learning from new research, and we'll do some episodes dedicated to answering your questions. We don’t have to do life alone. We were never meant to. Unlocking Us is a Spotify Original from Parcast.

    Brené on Armored versus Daring Leadership, Part 2 of 2

    This is Part 2 of our two-part series on daring leadership, where I unpack four more common types of armor that we use to self-protect when we're in fear. These barriers include creating a fitting-in culture versus a belonging culture; fostering a scarcity-based culture versus modeling that we are enough and have enough; leading reactively versus leading strategically; and resisting change versus accepting and embracing change.

    Brené on Armored versus Daring Leadership, Part 1 of 2

    Brené on Armored versus Daring Leadership, Part 1 of 2

    The greatest barrier to daring leadership is not fear; the greatest barrier is armor, or how we self-protect when we're in fear. This is Part I of a two-part series, where I unpack the most common types of armor, including being a knower versus being a learner, tapping out of hard conversation versus skilling up and leaning in, and using shame and blame to manage others versus using accountability and empathy. Join me for a conversation that includes real examples and actionable strategies about how we can dare to lead.

Where to get the “missing episodes”

It seems you can access this series and the “how to lead” series via Spotify and her website. Happy listening.

Deeply sad about move to Spotify

This podcast literally helped me survive the pandemic— I was insufferable, recommending it to anyone who would listen. Now that it has moved to Spotify I feel such a sense of loss, it’s like I lost my church! Spotify has one of the worst user agreements as far as respecting privacy is concerned, I will not download that app. And listening to their content via the browser is an intentionally frustrating experience because they’re trying to force users to let them in so they can snoop on your web activity and location data, no thanks. I would gladly pay to the subscribe to the podcast if you used a platform that respected user privacy. As a wise woman once said, daring leaders are never silent about hard things.
