Sharing Insightful Vulnerability™ Shows Why You’re a Leader

Years ago Speaking Guru Les Brown told me: “People don’t connect with your successes. They connect with your messes – your message is in your mess.” We all learn significantly from failures and set backs.

When I begin talking about those awkward moments and the lessons learned, I felt better about myself, and got positive reactions from colleagues and clients.

People appreciate authenticity. People notice self awareness and willingness to grow. And, most important, perhaps, people will open up about their “messes” and their lessons. It’s magical. This 2-minute video refers.
