Emotional Vulnerability in the Marketplace

You may believe that emotional vulnerability and business do not go hand in hand; but people no longer follow leaders who show no emotional vulnerability because people now expect authenticity and connection to be the currency with which they build professional relationships.

When a leader can show the inner workings of their heart while still guiding the organisation toward an impactful future, there is a unique strengthening that occurs. A leader who can display their humanity transforms their organization’s culture from one in which people simply get a paycheck to one in which people belong and find fulfilment.

Remember that your example sets the tone and atmosphere of an organisation. If you choose to be guarded and show no sign of flaws or fun, your staff and employees will reflect this attitude. Soon, your organisation will lack the vibrancy that comes from genuine connection.

People deserve to be treated as individuals, regardless of the type of business they work in. Leaders must also allow people to find a safe haven within the work to which they devote a significant portion of their lives. This necessitates a leadership revolution, which many are already embracing.

As a result, emotional vulnerability is not redundant when it comes to developing a dynamic, value-producing work culture. As a matter of fact, it may be the missing ingredient in helping your organisation foster healthier and more positive relations.
