Micro Episode 16 - Vulnerability and Leadership

In this Micro Episode, we explore vulnerability, how it shows up why it's necessary to understand it for yourself and how it impacts the people around you.

Timestamps and Takeaways

01:21 There's a lot of confusion about what it means to be vulnerable in the workplace, and we explore why that is.

02:09 Feeling uncomfortable before a meeting doesn't mean your thoughts tell you anything about whether or not you are a good leader; you are just experiencing Vulnerability.

03:05 When we feel uncomfortable, we automatically attach the meaning to that feeling of discomfort as something we shouldn't experience as leaders.

03:42 Creating awareness and noticing what you feel, so those feelings don't creep into the way you lead.

04:05 When we feel vulnerable and insecure, we tend to overprotect, control, micromanage and display all that stress outside in the world.

05:16 How being comfortable with being uncomfortable and experiencing vulnerability is helping you be a much better leader.

05:34 vulnerability is just noticing the stories that we innocently tell ourselves when we are not clear of mind. When we might have the lens of urgency or fear or feeling like we are an imposter or whatever it is, it's just noticing it and not trying to change it at all.

06:07 This isn't a strategy; you can't fake vulnerability; you either feel vulnerable and you are at the same time confident and clear of mind, or you are not.

07:39 Female leaders often tell themselves they need to control everything, be on top of it, appear strong and confident to compete with their male counterparts, and fear that it will ruin their reputation and good image if they don't behave like that.

09:08 Every time we make a step forward towards being more vulnerable and connecting with people without a mask, we are becoming better and more authentic leaders.

10:02 Letting your team know that you don't have all the answers opens doors to impactful collaboration, trust, creativity and innovation.

11:17 Expressing vulnerability can either be impactful when you share it from the space of clarity or debilitating if it comes from fear and urgency.
