NASHVIILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Popular author Brene Brown's research into shame, vulnerability and courage has given her A-list fans like Oprah and Melinda Gates and made her a go-to leadership consultant for both Pixar and the Seattle Seahawks.

Now she's expanding to Netflix on Friday with her special "Brene Brown: The Call to Courage ."

Brown has a researcher's mind for patterns and a storyteller's gift of language to illustrate broader ideas about parenting, compassion and leadership. In the special she talks about her 2010 TED Talk on vulnerability that's been viewed about 39 million times.

Brown says she puts language around feelings and experiences that we all have.

Her most recent book, "Dare to Lead: Brave Work. Tough Conversations. Whole Hearts," is a playbook for leading with empathy.
