Brené with Dr. Pippa Grange
on Fearing Less
This episode feels like a conversation with an old friend who happens to be an expert on fear, anxiety, and perfectionism. Pippa is a highly sought-after sports psychologist, culture coach, and author of the bestselling book, Fear Less: How to Win at Life Without Losing Yourself. As Head of People and Team Development at The Football Association, she worked closely with the England team for the World Cup in 2018 (remember when they finally broke that penalty kick curse?). Join us as we talk about what it means to live with an open heart versus clenched fists.

Fear Less: How to Win at Life Without Losing Yourself by Pippa Grange shows all of us how, by starting to live with less fear, we can find our real passions and deeper fulfilment. Her simple manifesto enables us to replace stress with courage and connect with the people around us on a far deeper level. This type of success isn’t about trophies or beating others, it’s about winning at the very deepest level: winning from within.
