While I am an admirer of Prof. Brown's work overall--particularly in lifting up the value of mutuality and vulnerabilty--this book is lacking in many ways. It appears that a lot of Prof. Brown's ideas have been shoehorned into a leadership context without an understanding of what complex and fast paced organizations are dealing with in this moment. The fact is that businesses are not generally safe places for people--even when there is great leadership. Case law and the chipping away of worker's rights means that vulnerability can and will be weaponized against those who have less power, or when/if they run afoul of leadership. How easily some of the recommended techniques could be used for manipulation. The chapter on values is particularly bad and devoid of a fully realized ethical construct. Finally, the neologism--"operationalizinator" is just horrible.
