donhornsby's insight:

(From the article): The single most significant piece of learning for me has been around understanding how vulnerability is the key to success in any collaborative process. We’ve got it all wrong in our work ethos. We believe vulnerability is a weakness. We are afraid to admit we don’t have the answer for fear of being seen as incompetent. Our need to prove our worth and value and the fear of shame all leads to creating separation. What I have found over and over again in my leadership journey is that when I am wiling to be vulnerable, share my true feelings no matter how embarrassing or weak I may be perceived, when I am able to truly listen to feedback and be willing to receive it without taking it personally, these acts are powerful beyond measure. This is a secret superpower that everyone possesses, but not everyone has the courage to enact. It takes a willingness to fail and learn from your mistakes, to risk the shame that comes along with it. But the rewards are bountiful. It’s the quickest route to creating trust in any relationship or group process. It creates an environment where others feel able to open up and share their feelings, stimulating input, ideas and solutions. It allows us to be human, and realize that we are all in this together. It opens up our hearts and reminds us that it’s not about the bottom line, or even the next big idea. It’s about being in relationship; the learning and experiences that show us who we truly are.

(From the article): Since people tend to avoid confrontation, especially with authority figures, passive resistance is more common in organizations than most of us realize. And sometimes it’s actually a good thing — it causes managers to avoid impulsive actions, think through implications of change, get people on board, and deal with emotional issues. Most of the time, however, passive resistance undermines a leader’s ability to get things done quickly and effectively. In fact it often puts leaders in the untenable position of confidently charging ahead — only to later discover that the team was not fully on-board.
