A few years ago I ran across Brene Brown's TED talk on shame (me and about 6 million other people). The video provoked me to read Brown's work, and I spent a few years working through her academic research, books, and articles.
In Brown's latest book, she discuss the debilitating effect of shame and feeling not good enough on a person's spirit, growth and ability to connect to others. What role does grandiosity play in that shame? I asked her to find out.
