In order to connect with people, and become an effective leader, you have to reveal and then figure out how to let go of the burdensome masks you carry. Being a different person from one situation to the next is not only a drain on your energy, but also gets in the way of being an authentic and trustworthy leader.
Leaders who gain our trust are honest when in positions of vulnerability. Instead of being threatened, they are comfortable in that space because they can delegate – rather than having to grasp at control.
Together, we can bring the real you to the fore. You’ll become more present and transparent in your interactions, and consistent in times when a clear leader is required.
