    • 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.
    • This book is terrific. The only thing I wish was different is that she told stories about leaders in organizations and how they exhibited or didn't exhibit the behaviors she discussed and what the effects were on their organizations.
    • Beene Brown does not disappoint. She is changing the world.
    • What a civilized world this would be if everyone read and learned from her research. Good read!
    • If you have read her other books, there is no need to read this one. It is more of the same but slanted to the business audience around leadership. One of the most useless leadership book I have ever read. I note the first quote is from Sheryl Sandberg--I would bet she never read the book, just gave a quote. The book is well written and some decent stories but no different than any other business book that is filled with stories of different leaders. I would say this book will be liked by her fans, others will find it a waste.
