Are you a Blamer? Do you know a Blamer?
Brene’ Brown names the reality of blame in her short animated video. Have you ever been blamed of something by a loved one? Heard others blaming someone in your organization? Perhaps, you’ve even blamed someone?
Brene’ Brown’s series of video shorts are wonderful for sparking engaging conversations about topics we don’t usually talk about. Her video on Blame is a wonderful way for us to shift from blame to accountability.
Blame seems to be so present in our current politically charged media. It’s also present in some organizations and communities. Perhaps this video can serve as a Cairn for finding a better way forward.
