Get Vulnerable

Wednesday, January 22, 2020 - Joe Kiedinger

Why are so many people afraid of being vulnerable? Why can’t many simply share what they’re feeling, openly and honestly? I think the #1 attribute of a great leader is humility. Humble leaders find it easy to be vulnerable.

Vulnerability doesn’t mean over-sharing or involving an emotional breakdown. It simply means to listen with compassion and without judgement.

As a leader, if you choose to adopt this approach, you will be amazed at how responsive people will be. Your influence will go up. Nobody likes a know-it-all; what people truly connect with is a person who can get a little vulnerable and show healthy humility.

ACTION PLAN: Do some research on how to get vulnerable with co-workers. There is great stuff out there!

Sometimes, all it takes is a little inspiration.

Understanding where others are coming from is critical in communicating and working toward a common cause.
