Brené Brown’s work has always been a great inspiration for us and a source of invaluable knowledge for Quality Coaches. Her years of research on vulnerability, courage, shame and empathy support our work and assist the techniques we develop to help our clients become their best selves.
For this blog, we share with you her talk from 2015 called “The Anatomy of Trust” featured in the Super Soul Sessions with Oprah Winfrey. In this video, Brené Brown explains her definition of trust with the word BRAVING. This is the anatomy of human trust, with all its complexity:
B = Boundaries – having clear boundaries and respecting them.
R = Reliability –
A = Accountability – owning our actions and their consequences.
V = Vault- confidentiality, opening up to share our reality; but only what it’s ours to share.
I = Integrity – honouring our values with every action.
N = Non-judgement – asking and offering help without judgement.
G = Generosity – believe the other’s actions are based on good intentions always, even when they make mistakes.
Trust is a fundamental pillar of coaching. A successful coaching process requires that build trusting relationships with our clients. Trust is also the fuel of every meaningful relationship in our lives, hence the importance of Brené’s ideas. Breaking up Trust into its parts helps us understand better our feelings, communicate our needs effectively and find solutions to enhance our lives with others.
Take the time to listen to it with full attention.
