Ready for a vulnerability hangover? Five ideas from Brené Brown

Ready for a vulnerability hangover? Five ideas from Brené Brown | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
Empathy, Vulnerability, Shame and Failure

 

I recently had the great privilege and pleasure of interviewing Brené Brown, one of the world’s most original and exciting thinkers about emotional life, before a packed audience at London’s historic Conway Hall. It was no surprise that the event, organised by The School of Life, sold out its five hundred tickets within a record time of 48 hours. (...)

To give you a taste of her book, and the conversation we had, I’d like to pick out five of Brené’s ideas that I find to be particularly insightful, original and applicable to everyday life.

Our life is a prototype in constant refinement

Our life is a prototype in constant refinement | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it

How can I build a path for the growth of innovation in companies that take us to the welfare and happiness of the people and not exclusively for those who are shareholders of these companies?

(...)

 

Tim Brown presents five ways to practice in our daily lives the principles of Design Thinking:

1 – Be optimistic, collaborative and generative.

2 – Think of life as a prototype.

3 – Don´t ask “what?” ask “why?”.

4 – Demand divergent options.

5 -Once a day, deeply observe the ordinary.

 

These are some important points to reflect and apply in our daily life if we want to evolve towards sustainable well-being. But they are not just notes for life outside of work. Are notes for ours 24 hours and must be adapted or suited to working environments where we operate, that is, according to our role in organizations.

(From the article): Being glad for others for most of us is quite easy.  It’s great to see people doing well.  Showing you’re glad means actively helping them to celebrate their successes.  When someone gets that qualification or loses that 6lb, find a way to help them celebrate.  Buy a bunch of flowers or send that card, or take the time to drop an email, pop your head round the door and tell them “Well done”.  Too often in our fast paced lives, even though we may be glad for others, we fall short of showing we are.

Lido transversalmente embora o título seja sugestivo, sublinho " Meaning is not only about transcending the self, but also about transcending the present moment -- which is perhaps the most important finding of the study, according to the researchers. While happiness is an emotion felt in the here and now, it ultimately fades away, just as all emotions do; positive affect and feelings of pleasure are fleeting. The amount of time people report feeling good or bad correlates with happiness but not at all with meaning."

Ariana Amorim's curator insight, January 22, 2013 8:39 AM

A must read.

Is there a difference between a happy life and a meaningful life? How do the happy life and the meaningful life differ?  

In a new study, which will be published this year in a forthcoming issue of the Journal of Positive Psychology, psychological scientists found that a meaningful life and happy life overlap in certain ways, but are ultimately very different. Leading a happy life is associated with being a "taker" while leading a meaningful life corresponds with being a "giver.

Take this: "Happiness without meaning characterizes a relatively shallow, self-absorbed or even selfish life, in which things go well, needs and desire are easily satisfied, and difficult or taxing entanglements are avoided".

The Empathy Test | Coaching in Education for learning and leadership | Scoop.it
This seemingly innocent parlour trick is actually a method social scientists have used for more than a decade to measure perspective-taking – the ability to step outside one’s own experience and see the world from someone else’s viewpoint. People who write the E so that it’s backward to themselves but legible to their partner have taken the other’s perspective. Those who draw the E so that it’s readable to themselves but backward to others haven’t bothered to consider the other person’s point of view.
