E27: Vulnerability in the workplace is the root of authentic leadership
December 21, 2021
It’s a well-known fact that people who are vulnerable are more likely to be liked, trusted, and respected. They make better leaders because they are open to feedback, willing to admit mistakes, and able to connect with others on an emotional level. In this episode, we have guest Zoe Routh, Strategist & Leadership Expert, Owner of Inner Compass. Zoë Routh talks about how vulnerability and openness are two key leadership qualities that are often lacking in today's organizations. She also talks about how you can practice workplace transparency and how we need to expand our perspective (deep and wide perspective). One way is to dive deep below the surface is to use a visual representation called a "problem tree" which helps people understand complex issues by breaking them down into smaller parts. "if we're not learning from what didn't work, then we are not progressing" Zoë Routh.
