As we navigate this new norm, I have found myself reflecting on and re-learning some key lessons from my past.
Over the next two weeks, I want to share some of those key lessons. The first one is The Power of Authenticity.
Authenticity is one of the qualities that separate great leaders from the merely good ones. It is one of the differences between those who blossom in a crisis and those who wither.
You can watch my three part series on The Power of Authenticity here.
Vulnerability is contagious. Have you ever tried being vulnerable with another person, or group of people? Opening up and sharing something as personal as a struggle you’re having or a weakness you are dealing with? As I learned from a group of 7th grade boys, vulnerability is contagious.
In order to use vulnerability and authenticity to the fullest, you must first be honest with yourself. Then you can wield the power of being authentic with others.
Two real life examples of people who used the power of authenticity to expand their influence.
