Shared a recent experience of losing an employee and how we could have kept him if our leadership had been willing to be Vulnerable. We tend to think of vulnerability as a weakness – something we have to hide. As leaders, we feel that stoicism, and ‘having it all together’ is what our people need to see/feel. We feel this inclination as leaders, as men, and as Americans. It’s something the culture presses on us. However, it takes real strength to be willing to admit failings, flaws, challenges, etc. When you’re willing to share those realities with the people you lead, you can have more honest and candid conversations, and you can gain a lot of respect and credibility. We failed as a company and lost a great employee because we weren’t willing to be vulnerable from the top down. YHC believes that you cannot really lead without being vulnerable.
