How to embrace vulnerability
Why vulnerability is important for personal growth
Many workplaces encourage their employees to be vulnerable and authentic as it can bring people closer and make teams stronger.
But doing so can also backfire. Many people fear to be vulnerable at the wrong time or with the wrong person. It may make them seem incompetent if they’re in a more performance-oriented culture at work.
Just because vulnerability helps to build trust doesn’t mean you should share everything with everybody. The key to vulnerability is in establishing boundaries.
We share our emotions and experiences to move our work, connection or relationship forward. Therefore we have to examine our intention around sharing, question who we’re sharing with, and whether it’s the right thing.
The most vulnerable and authentic leaders personally disclose very little. It means that you can be vulnerable without revealing everything about your emotions or life.
You could say, “I’m really struggling right now. I have some stuff going on, and it’s hard. I want you to know what support looks like for me is that I’ll check in with you if I need something or I may take some time off. I will bring it up with you when it’s helpful for me but don't want to answer a lot of questions about it.”

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
