In order to keep and develop great employees, timeless topics around leadership like account-ability (holding a person in account of their unique ability) and vulnerability must be reevaluated. The old ways of leading are no longer effective. You need to invest time in the people you work with—get to know their stories and their motivations. And guess what, that starts with you! As a leader you need to be the first one to share your story… to get vulnerable. Your employees will appreciate that vulnerability and be more willing to reciprocate. Sharing with each other builds a bond and makes your team stronger.
To be the best leader you can be, just start by telling your story—and encouraging others to do the same. Check out our video for some tips on how to get started. It’s easier than you think.
