Vulnerability – The Characteristic of Champions
Wednesday, December 11, 2019 - 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!
