Brené Brown has spent the past two decades studying the emotions and experiences that give meaning to our lives, and the past seven years working with transformative leaders and teams spanning the globe. She found that leaders in organizations ranging from small entrepreneurial startups and family-owned businesses to nonprofits, civic organizations, and Fortune 50 companies all ask the same question: How do you cultivate braver, more daring leaders, and how do you embed the value of courage in your culture? This audiobook answers this question.

Halfway through listening this book I stopped it. Although the book may have some points on leadership it fails to connect with the readers especially knowing that the author herself narrates the book. Almost every one in five sentences is self promoting. The author goes on and on about how great her approach is and how many thousands of people from different background have enjoyed her seminars. The ideas presented in this book are not new either. Most of it are common sense. How To Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie written 80 years ago covers is far better a book on leadership.
