Brene Brown

Dr. Brené Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston where she holds the Huffington Foundation – Brené Brown Endowed Chair at The Graduate College of Social Work.

She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy and is the author of five #1 New York Times bestsellers: The Gifts of Imperfection, Daring Greatly, Rising Strong, Braving the Wilderness, and her latest book, Dare to Lead, which is the culmination of a seven-year study on courage and leadership.

These are Brene’s tips for speaking. Important to remember.

My five rules for speaking:

1. Generosity. Bring all you have. It’s ok to be brave and afraid at the same time.

2. Gratitude. Remember they’re giving you their most precious resource: TIME!

3. Connect. It’s all about collective connection. Look into their eyes.

4. Service. It’s not about you. Stop doing it if/when it becomes about you.

5. Never take yourself too seriously. Laugh, learn, keep it real.

Five minutes before I went on stage for SXSW, I found Charlie’s stick-on mustache in my jacket pocket. It was such a good reminder.
