Good lessons for your leadership journey
Reviewed in Australia on 18 November 2019
I’ve not read any Brene Brown before, this was my first foray into her writings. When I mentioned I was reading this book to friends and colleagues, I was surprised how many had heard of her (and in many cases, she had been recommended reading).
I do find her examples and stories very American. I think there are some workplace practices she references that are more common to American workplaces. However, overall I got a lot out of this book.
I think as a leader it’s important to be well read, to explore a number of different theories and practices and find what works for you. I may not adopt everything Browne recommends but there are certainly some lessons in here I’ve already tested out!
