Why The Best Leaders View Vulnerability as a Strength

Why The Best Leaders View Vulnerability as a Strength | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Almost everyone seems to think that being vulnerable is a bad thing – it implies that you’re weak or defenseless. In fact, when someone is willing to admit they’re vulnerable, it demonstrates a level of trust and respect with the person or people they’re opening up to. Great leaders recognize the importance of bringing vulnerability to work because it is the foundation for open and nonjudgmental communications. The boldest act of a leader is to be publicly vulnerable.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 30, 9:12 AM

(From the article): A leader who shows vulnerability is someone who stops feeling compelled to be the first one with an idea or the first one to answer a question. Becoming vulnerable requires a mindset shift where you start to see the aspirations of the business through the eyes of the people you lead. This invites them to become more involved in – and in fact to become the drivers of – the conversation. When you are vulnerable, your employees feel more connected, invested, respected, and vital to the organization. Everyone benefits.

Don Cloud's curator insight, September 30, 2:47 PM

Our humanity is the source of our strength.  Just as fear does not define weakness, but rather it is courage in the face of fear that defines true strength.  Similarly, being vulnerable does not define weakness, but rather embracing one's vulnerability defines the strength of a leader.

Resilient Leadership Starts Before Needed

Resilient Leadership Starts Before Needed | New Leadership | Scoop.it

Seven months ago, the Rustic Crust was on track for record sales of its all-natural pizza crust. Investors were enthused about soon-to-launch products that were gluten-free, thin crusts, and basil pesto. Founder and CEO Brad Sterl was thrilled.


Then-disaster! Fire burned the rural New Hampshire factory to the ground on March 6.

 

According to an article in USA Today, Sterl literally jumped into action. Today, despite a $4 million loss in revenue during down time, customers and brokers are intact, retailers ready to stock their shelves, a large contract signed with Safeway to put his product in 1400 stores, employees working seven days a week to make up for the loss, the makeshift factory bustling, and a new facility ready to open in late October or early November.

How Companies Can Learn to Make Faster Decisions

How Companies Can Learn to Make Faster Decisions | New Leadership | Scoop.it

SpaceX had a problem. Managers at the aerospace manufacturer wanted to make faster decisions for one of their big clients — NASA — by finding alternatives to the high volume of meetings and cumbersome spreadsheets used for tracking projects. Initially, NASA sent a fax (yes, a fax) whenever they had a query, which SpaceX added to a list of outstanding questions. The company then assembled a weekly 50-person meeting to review product status information contained in spreadsheets, addressing each question individually before sending the responses back to NASA.

 

SpaceX’s dilemma is not an uncommon one. In today’s organizations, the speed of decision making matters, but most are pretty bad at it. One-third of all products are delivered late or incomplete due to an inability or delay in decision-making, according to research from Forrester Consulting and Jama Software. Others at Gartner cite “speed of decision making” as the primary obstacle impacting internal communication. No doubt you’ve been part of a team that waited… and waited… for a higher-up to make a decision before you could resume your work.
