Leaders today need to lead with vulnerability- not bravado.
Imagine being seen as a leader who only cares about your image, not about the future of the company, and creating a sense of invincibility that could harm others. 🛑
Showing vulnerability as a leader will put you 20 steps forward instead of 20 steps back. 🗸 Being smart, honest, and caring will ultimately win you favor in the company.
☑️ Start by telling the truth: Share your perspective with others, what you know and what you don’t know. The best leaders tell the truth no matter how traumatic.
☑️ Go outside your comfort zone: One of the reasons people fail to develop into a leader is that they repeat what has worked already. Learn a new skill to use, it will make you stronger in the long term.
☑️When you make a mistake, admit it and apologize: People will appreciate your honesty and trust more than if you lie to them. Failing to admit you are wrong will lead others to question your judgment.
