Being a vulnerable leader
When we asked team leaders about important leadership behaviours in crisis, comments about ‘authenticity’, being ‘vulnerable’ and that it was OK to ‘wobble’ followed.
In this 20-minute Ted Talk by Brene Brown PHD focuses on why vulnerability is important in our work and other aspects of our lives.
How has this made you think about your ‘wobbles’ or being your whole self as a manager and team leader?
To what extent do you feel able to say ‘I don’t know’ and ‘I am sorry’? Has this talk altered how you may respond in the future?
What ideas do you have for bringing this into your work life?

Brene mentions empathy as the key to connecting with each other. Her talk and video on empathy is lovely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Evwgu369Jw
