Leaders Read#32



"The courage to be vulnerable is not about winning or losing; it’s about the courage to show up when you can’t predict or control the outcome.” - Brené Brown.


👋 Hello everyone,


This week's book is one of my favorites!


 


📚 Book Summary:

This week's book is "Dare to lead" by Brené Brown


Every leader needs some Brené Brown in their lives. Dare to Lead is a great book about how leadership revolves around risk, courage, and vulnerability. Brené Brown shares excellent insights on how to navigate, stay sane, and become a strong leader.


One of my favorite take away from the book is this:

"The third thing I learned has turned into a mandate by which I live: If you are not in the arena getting your ass kicked on occasion, I'm not interested in or open to your feedback. There are a million cheap seats in the world today filled with people who will never be brave with their lives but who will spend every ounce of energy they have hurling advice and judgment at those who dare greatly. Their only contributions are criticism, cynicism, and fear-mongering. If you're criticizing from a place where you're not also putting yourself on the line, I'm not interested in what you have to say."


✅ Actionable advice:

Sam Altman talks about the importance of being internally driven, being driven to compete with yourself, not with other people. If you compete with other people, you end up in this mimetic trap, and you sort of play this tournament, and if you win, you lose. To capture some wisdom from Marcus Aurelius, "Tranquility comes when you stop caring what they say. Or think or do. Only what you do."
