What does it mean to be vulnerable? Is vulnerability a strength or weakness?

Being vulnerable is hard. Most of us have anxiety about being rejected, shamed, or judged as inadequate. So why is vulnerability so important? Brene Brown describes vulnerability as “the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy and creativity.” Why?

Listen to Gavin take questions live on air from listeners, including whether vulnerability in the workplace is a good or a bad thing, how relationships can and should foster vulnerability and the personal cost of failing to embrace our vulnerability.
