Some leaders don’t find it difficult to manage people, but for others it seems to be this gut-wrenching thing. Being a good leader requires an ability to connect – to see and to be seen. Let’s talk about connecting and how courage and vulnerability come into play.
What you’ll find in this episode:
- To manage people, and have the kinds of conversations that good leaders need to have, requires a level of intimacy.
- Kris’s meaning of “intimacy.”
- Why intimacy requires vulnerability and, therefore, courage.
- Who you are, and how you’ve lived, is how you lead.
- As a leader you have a responsibility for the care of the emotional health and the thinking of people who work for you.
