Vulnerability as a Super Power
Updated: Sep 25, 2020
“I am going to be vulnerable today,” said no one ever! The word vulnerable has such a negative connotation associated with it. Nobody wants to be vulnerable, but really, that negative perception is a perception that the person showing vulnerability can control. Others may perceive you as vulnerable at times, but by showing what others perceive as “vulnerable,” you are showing a unique strength that not many people are willing to show. By admitting you don’t know something or that you need help, you open up your own learning. As a coach or a consultant, work with your clients to get them comfortable with showing what others consider vulnerability. It’s not such a bad thing, and it can lead to improvement.
