  9. 9. Vulnerability Vulnerability is the path to love, to belonging, to innovation, trust and creativity. 85% of interviewees for Brene Brown’s research can recall a time in school that was so shaming it forever changed how they thought of themselves as learners – 50% of those recollections related to art and creativity.
