Vulnerability is such an important quality but can be so challenging to reach. I’m at a place in my life and my business where it’s happening a lot more organically and I’m finding myself sharing and crying and opening up in a way that isn’t really typical of me. The feedback I’m getting for that….Thank you! Each time I’m vulnerable those listening have really truly listened and then thanked me for being vulnerable.
Being vulnerable in a position of leadership is particularly difficult, especially because you can have this fear that it makes you look weak but that is just not the truth. I recently went to a 3-day conference and had the opportunity to take the “hot seat” and before I knew it I was there in front of everyone opening up and crying and being vulnerable. The coaching that came from that experience was truly helpful and I had so much support from the audience. That vulnerability was the key to pushing me to believe in myself and to give myself the courage to step into my vision.
Believe it or not, even though we’ve just celebrated our 10-year milestone, the last 5 years have been really challenging for me in my business. I’ve experienced burnout and feelings of depression. I’ve felt trapped, confused, and unhappy. I really felt it was time to share that with my team, as I’m internally being called to speak more about that on the show. So again I got vulnerable on a company call and I’m so thankful I did.
… And that is where I’m going to leave you until part two next week, because during this recording, speaking of vulnerability, something pretty amazing happened…
