“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
