No one likes to be seen as weak. Or even vulnerable.
We try to hide any sign that we might not be where we need to be.
Yet we’re consistently discovering the best way to lead is through our vulnerability.
What Is Vulnerability?
A lot of us don’t want to show any vulnerabilities. We want people to see us as strong.
So, we hide. We retreat to a safe place where no one can hurt us.
That, in itself, tells us what vulnerability is.
Vulnerability is being willing to lay yourself out there, bare and naked, so others can see who you truly are.
Your weakness is out there. Pain that you’ve felt is shared. People are able to look at you and see you. The REAL you.
This is what vulnerability is.
