“The key to leadership is being vulnerable.”


Although this concept has been trending for more than a few years now, there is still plenty of ambiguity around what that actually looks like in the real world.  We know this because as a leadership development company, we consistently get questions about it – What do I need to be vulnerable about?  How much is too much?  When is the best time to share?

Today’s episode answers these questions and several others, to help you become a better leader and teammate through a willingness to share your flaws.  A few specifics we address are:

  • How the perception of credibility has changed over time
  • 3 key features of credibility
  • How the vulnerability loop enhances relationships
  • “The little things” that contribute to trustworthiness and warmth
