In the second episode of the Messy Leadership Podcast, we will explore the importance of VULNERABILITY.
There is no way around it… if we desire to be effective leaders, the prevailing leadership research shows that messy leaders must embody something that none of us really wants to talk about, much less display in our lives on a regular basis. As leaders, we know we need to be strong, confident, and authoritative… But for deep trust to be established in our interpersonal relationships, a level of vulnerability is necessary.
VULNERABILITY is the place where MESSYNESS at it’s most COMPLEX and challenging.
Honestly, I would rather not open this brand new podcast with a topic so emotionally-charged and potentially polarizing, but there is really no way around this subject. Eventually, we will need to deal with the reality of the extreme tension that exists within each of us in regard to VULNERABILITY… so let’s go ahead, take a deep breath, and just get into it.
