I’m working on a communications writing question and need a sample draft to help me understand better.
Watch Brene Brown’s TED talk on the Power of Vulnerability at www.ted.com/talks/brene_brown_on_vulnerability.htm…
Explore one area of your shame or sense of unworthiness. (As Dr. Brown notes, all humans have shame — The only ones who do not are incapable of empathy, otherwise known as sociopaths.)
Think about a leadership situation that challenged your shame or sense of unworthiness
- You should explore one particular situation in the context of your leadership in family, civic/community, in the classroom. Context matters and informs our choices, and we may make different choices in different contexts. We want to look at that.
Think about the choices you made in the face of that challenge. Did you face shame and choose to be vulnerable? Did you hide shame and avoid vulnerability?
What were the consequences of your choices? For you? For others?
How was the leadership situation affected by your choices?
You can choose any area of your life that has caused you shame & vulnerability (identity, bullying, height, etc.) – where you got messages that you didn’t belong or were not “enough”. Maybe someone shamed you for making a mistake.
Remember, to analyze, not summarize.
Hi. I just want to add that you could focus on the elements of the talk and relate to personal stories. That’s pretty much all. Thank you.
