1. Vulnerability
‘The Power of Vulnerability’ is a Ted Talk by Brené Brown, in which she shares her
understanding on vulnerability and why it is important for leaders. In this video, Brené shares her
study on human connection in regard to love, belonging, and empathy. Research about the topic
has assisted her to understand herself better as a leader, and also have a better comprehension of
humanity. Brené shares her experiences in life and tries to explain that it is impossible to
understand creativity, belonging, joy, and love without vulnerability. She also mentions that
people need to understand shame if they have to put themselves out there. According to Brené, it
is important for people who are willing to share their ideas, art, poetry, or writing with the world
to care about other people’s opinions, because it enables them to connect (Brown).
Vulnerability is very key in leadership because it enables leaders to build trust and
elevate performance. Sharing struggles does not signify weakness, but it is tremendously a strong
way of establishing trust. Vulnerability influences people’s way of thinking and leading others.
Being vulnerable helps leaders boost trust in their places of work by letting other people into
their heads. When leaders show others that it is okay to be emotionally vulnerable, it
automatically makes it normal for them to embrace vulnerability. If employees know that
something is wrong in the organization and the leader is vulnerable or courageous enough to
open up to them, there is a creation of a certain space that propels the organization to a better
level. Leaders that make vulnerability normal in the workplace establish an environment for
open, as well as nonjudgmental communication (Meyer et al., 2018). Great leaders use
vulnerability to make others understand their strengths by making them understand that they are
also human beings who can make mistakes and find solutions.
