Global Conversation II

A recap of the July 28th Global Conversation

I love how each of the graphic/visual recorders brought their gifts to share how they heard the conversations in both the large and small group conversations. This is a peek into our two hour conversation on “The Gifts of Imperfection” and Brene Brown’s work.

The History of the Global Conversation!

Our first Global Conversation was hosted on November 22, 2011.  It was a joint effort of Suzanne Daigle and Elaine Hansen. You can learn more about the first Global Conversation here.  With changes in Posterous, we plan to move the old files to a single location. It may be a few months before we make that happen.   On July 28 @3pm ET, Elaine hostedthe  Global Conversation II on The Gifts of Imperfection.  

Have you heard of the work of Brené Brown, PhD? How about her book, The Gifts of Imperfection ? A group of us have been so inspired by her videos and books, we are hungry for another Global Conversation about this work and what it means to each of us.

If you don’t know Brené, watch this video:

Last year when we hosted the call a large group (over 500 registered) of us engaged in small group conversations about the work of Brené Brown and what it meant to our lives.  

MaestroConference technology provided the magic to break the large group into many small groups. And small groups were where the real conversation happened. We used powerful questions to give us an excuse to share with each other…and listened to amazing stories.

We provided a safe place where people could talk and gather about what matters to them. We had imagined that 100 people might join us. In only been 3 days, we exceeded our goal and expanded to accommodate many more. We were amazed and inspired by the positive impact that Brené Brown is having on so many people with her wholehearted message.

Here we were, Ordinary people – just like you, who dreamed of hosting an Extraordinary event. We imagined sitting around our virtual kitchen tables with all of you. More people than we dreamed came to the table.  

To learn more about last year’s call go here and be sure to check out the visual recordings of this call. Or  join us out on Facebook.  You can, also, order Brené Brown’s book, The Gifts of Imperfection

Elaine’s new project, HeartWork was birthed out this experience. You can learn more about this project and her work here.
