Developing honest, open, sincere, and straightforward communication in communities—communities in which stakeholders are comfortable sharing deeply-held values (PI Practice M1)—requires vulnerability, a quality that does not come naturally in a competitive, performance-based society. University of Houston researcher Brené Brown describes the role of vulnerability, self-compassion, and authenticity in developing a well-connected society.
