At first, the idea that people can tell you’re kinda faking it might fill you with dread.
What if you get found out? I mean, we’ve all “faked it” to some extent, most of us are aspiring to do better, be better.
But then again, the idea that people can spot the truth about you is very liberating, because it leaves you with no other option but honesty. Which will make your life a whole lot simpler. Vulnerability has been shown to be a huge driver of group dynamics. The paradox isn’t lost on any of us, is it?
There you go, for all those tough, unreasonable, hard-nosed leaders, stop pretending and start being vulnerable, your career will benefit.
