“When is that moment when [my] brain goes to shaming, blaming, defensiveness, victimization, patronization, persecution?”

According to Denise Cooper, Founder and CEO of Remarkable Leadership Lessons, the key to stepping out of the repetitive cycles of shame and blame we’ve been socialized to engage in is to develop awareness of the moment this starts to happen.
