Choose Positive Living with Sara Troy and her guest Shelley Brown, on air from June 15th
Elon Musk, Lady Gaga, Andy Warhol, Sir Richard Branson have all been described as “weird”, but that’s exactly what propelled them to their success. Our “weird” doesn’t know it’s weird until it’s judged by others. And when that happens, many of us spend years, even decades wearing that judgment every day like an itchy wool sweater. What happens if we shift our thinking and begin embracing our weirdness?
Shelley will invite your audience to allow their own “weird” and join what she affectionately calls the “the collective weirdness of humaning”. She will offer advice on:
- How people can allow their “weird” in a way that generates personal and professional growth.
- How to mitigate the “bullshould,” the space between where we are and where we think we should be.
- Five ways organizations can benefit from embracing inclusivity through individuality and weirdness.
We are on 12 audio and 2 video platforms as seen here.
Shelley Brown is a speaker, mindfulness educator, mentor, artist and author best known as the creator of Weird Girl, a series of humorous essays written about real life experiences. Born and raised in Chicago, she graduated from DePaul University and served over 25 years in corporate America.
In 2014, Brown faced her greatest challenge when she suffered a serious spinal injury. After a lifetime of fitness that included 25 marathons, six ultra-marathons, and countless half-marathons, she found herself living with impaired mobility and chronic pain. Now living life with gratitude and joy, Brown provides organizations with keynote talks and customized mindfulness seminars aimed at humanizing work cultures, cultivating self-aware leaders, and of course, allowing our “weird.”
