As A Leader, Where Do You Go to Fall Apart?
As leaders we don't "have to" be vulnerable.
It can be incredibly compelling to be the person who's always holding space, promoting our cause or our work, and sharing our insights with our tribe.
But being the organization builder, wise teacher, or tapped-in spiritual leader can become a facade in and of itself - a place of safety, hiding, and inauthenticity.
As a leader what is your modus operandi?
Are there places where you're not completely coachable? Are there areas where you use your leadership as a place to hide? Do you demand more transparency from your clients and community members than you're willing to offer them in return? Do you hide your inner struggles from the people you're serving?
Or do you share your heart openly and honestly with your community? Do you put yourself "on their level" by allowing them to experience and know your inner emotional landscape? Do you model transparent leadership by revealing yourself powerfully and honestly?
In a world where vulnerability is typically equated with weakness - a negative trait to be managed - and in a world where most people are terrified to be fully honest with the reality of their inner experience, leadership can be a very alluring curtain to hide behind.
But there's always a cost. A cost to you, your loved ones, your clients, and your community.
Joshua Hathawa, Peter Rubin, and Robert Schwenkler share lessons, thoughts, and insights on being the leader who doesn’t pretend to have it all figured out all the time.
