Instead of worrying about fitting in, the answer to solving our disconnected world may be simply about creating true belonging. In this provocative interview, Brené Brown explains how we can forge deeper Connections to bring us together — and sometimes that means getting out of our comfort zone. “It’s a practice (true belonging) that requires us to be vulnerable, get uncomfortable, and learn how to be present with people without sacrificing who we are.” Change happens when we Intentionally Connect with people who are different from us. As leaders we are better able to create our desired culture and Experience when people feel safe in Being vulnerable and sharing their differences.
