Jacob Morgan was taught that vulnerability was dumb and weak. Until he discovered the ability to lead with vulnerability is a human superpower. If you've ever pondered the fine line between showing vulnerability as a leader and exposing weakness, this episode was recorded for you. But this episode isn’t just for leaders because in the era of VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, and Ambiguous), every human being on the planet must be vulnerable as well as more competent. Jacob reveals his own battle with vulnerability and how his own “tough guy” approach to challeng led to panic attacks. Addressing these challenges, fears, and hopes, he decided to interview over 100 CEO interviews and engage over 14,000 employees in his quest to reveal the secret sauce of the "Vulnerable Leader Equation.” Leadership + Vulnerability is tricky. Get it right and you’re a hall of famer. Get it wrong, and it's a facepalm moment. So get ready to dive deep with Jacob to learn what it takes to lead with vulnerability and thrive in the age of Googlization. 

Here's what's in store:

  • The difference between being vulnerable vs leading with vulnerability
  • The relationship between competence and vulnerability
  • Why most people are not vulnerable at work
  • 8 attributes of leaders with the competence to lead with vulnerability
  • Where leaders can get started
