Leading with Vulnerability

Vulnerability starts with the leader. And when you lead with vulnerability, it becomes an emotional resource from which conflicts and challenges can be solved.

But it starts with the leader.

And its benefits are many:

  • Others will follow suit.
  • It opens the door to trust.
  • It increases organizational health.
  • It minimizes risk.
  • It strengthens teams.
  • It makes addressing conflict possible.
  • It’s the starting point of shared accountability.
  • It lowers turnover.
  • It increases a sense of community.


I’d love to hear how you’ve led with vulnerability. Share your thoughts here.
