Leadership is many different things. Leadership is exhilarating and excruciating at the same time, because leadership is in the middle of the ebb and flow of life.
One aspect of leadership that isn’t typically discussed is vulnerability. Leadership by its very nature is vulnerable. It’s exposed for everyone to see. The results are visible across a spectrum broader than the leader, good or bad.
Leaders may as well be honest with their struggles or at least with their results. They certainly aren’t hidden from anyone. In fact if shared in an appropriate manner, everyone will benefit. There’s a stronger connection, and shared responsibility.
