Are You Willing to Admit Your Foibles and Weaknesses?
When you were an individual contributor you strived to produce error-free work. In fact, others celebrated how well you did, and they demonstrated that by promoting you. Unfortunately, now you’ve taken that desire for perfection into a leadership position, and it doesn’t work there. The most successful leaders are willing to acknowledge their weaknesses and foibles. It is what makes them authentic and approachable. Their humanness also makes others want to follow them. Are you willing to give up the control to hide your weaknesses, to always appear you know the answer and to be vulnerable with your team? Improv Theater can teach you how to deal with uncertainty while making team members shine. Leaders must be willing to step out and take risks. This podcast will provide creative and insightful ideas to get you there.
