Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy
#1 National Best Seller

From Facebook’s COO and Wharton’s top-rated professor, the #1 New York Times best-selling authors of Lean In and Originals: a powerful, inspiring, and practical book about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks.

 
After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl Sandberg felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. “I was in ‘the void,’” she writes, “a vast emptiness that fills your heart and lungs and restricts your ability to think or even breathe.” Her friend Adam Grant, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are concrete steps people can take to recover and rebound from life-shattering experiences. We are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. It is a muscle that everyone can build.
Option B combines Sheryl’s personal insights with Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Beginning with the gut-wrenching moment when she finds her husband, Dave Goldberg, collapsed on a gym floor, Sheryl opens up her heart—and her journal—to describe the acute grief and isolation she felt in the wake of his death. But Option B goes beyond Sheryl’s loss to explore how a broad range of people have overcome hardships including illness, job loss, sexual assault, natural disasters, and the violence of war. Their stories reveal the capacity of the human spirit to persevere . . . and to rediscover joy.
Resilience comes from deep within us and from support outside us. Even after the most devastating events, it is possible to grow by finding deeper meaning and gaining greater appreciation in our lives. Option B illuminates how to help others in crisis, develop compassion for ourselves, raise strong children, and create resilient families, communities, and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to everyday struggles, allowing us to brave whatever lies ahead. Two weeks after losing her husband, Sheryl was preparing for a father-child activity. “I want Dave,” she cried. Her friend replied, “Option A is not available,” and then promised to help her make the most of Option B.
We all live some form of Option B. This book will help us all make the most of it.

Men, Women, and Worthiness: The Experience of Shame and the Power of Being Enough
What does it mean to engage with the world from a place of worthiness? How do we make the long walk from "What will people think" to "I am enough!" Dr. Brené Brown has spent more than 10 years researching these questions, and her discoveries always lead back to one critical finding: Shame resilience. "If we want to cultivate more courage, joy, and love in our lives, we have to understand how and why shame keeps us afraid and small." On Men, Women, and Worthiness, Dr. Brown shows how liberating it is when we stop pursuing unattainable ideals of perfection-and start embracing who we truly are. In this rich exploration of the themes she introduces in her popular TED talks, Dr. Brown explores:

. The differences and similarities between the experience of shame for men and women
. Guilt vs. shame-why one is a useful force for growth, while the other holds us back
. The four elements of shame resilience-identifying triggers, critical awareness, reaching out, and speaking honestly

We often try to deal with shame by numbing ourselves to it-but in doing so, we deaden our experience of the joys of life as well. With the trademark warmth, candor, and humor that has made her such a celebrated speaker, Brené Brown offers us an alternative to running away from the "unworthy" parts of ourselves. Here is a bold invitation to let go of your beliefs of who you should be-so you can recognize the full potential of the person you are.

The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting: Raising Children with Courage, Compassion, and Connection

Dr. Brené Brown's Ten Guideposts to Wholehearted Families

We all know that perfect parenting does not exist, yet we still struggle with the social expectations that teach us that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. These messages are powerful and we end up spending precious time and energy managing perception and the carefully edited versions of the families we show to the world. On The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting, Dr. Brené Brown invites us on a journey to transform the lives of parents and children alike. Drawing on her 12 years of research on vulnerability, courage, worthiness, and shame, she presents 10 guideposts to creating what she describes as "wholehearted" families where each of us can continually learn and grow as we reach our full potential, including:

  • Cultivating worthiness in families—the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging
  • Vulnerability—the key to true connection
  • Engaging in creativity and play as a family
  • Practicing gratitude and joy in the home
  • Respect and hard work in a culture of "fun, fast, and easy"

"It's actually our ability to embrace imperfection that will help us teach our children to have the courage to be authentic, the compassion to love themselves and others, and the sense of connection that gives true purpose and meaning to life," states Dr. Brown. The Gifts of Imperfect Parenting is a practical and hopeful program for raising children who know that they are worthy of love, belonging, and joy.

Course objectives:

  • Discuss how to cultivate worthiness in families-the knowledge that we are each always worthy of love and belonging
  • Explain how to engage in creativity and play as a family
  • Discuss how to cultivate a practice of gratitude and joy in the home
  • Explain the value of respect and hard work within a culture of "fun, fast, and easy"
  • Discuss how to embrace imperfection as a parent and how to teach our children to have the courage to be authentic and compassionate
