Your network is indeed your net worth

I hold a Bachelor of Commerce degree, majoring in HR and Business Management and I later earned a Postgraduate Diploma in Personnel Management. Currently, I lead a global HR team in reinforcing strong company culture, creating and leading large-scale employee engagement and development programs, and implementing reward and talent management strategies that support the achievement of business goals and objectives. Having over 15 years’ experience in this field, I have had the honour and privilege of working with some of the most dynamic and talented individuals. However, I have learned never to get too attached to my team because once they acquire the skills and expertise they need, they will most likely pursue greener pastures.

I seemed to have been exposed to people who shot poison arrows at my vulnerability, which eventually floored me.

Never in my life was I scared of showing my vulnerability. I talked about my emotions openly. I undertook many brave things as a solo woman.

We should be teaching this to our kids in school instead of algebra.

Every person, let alone anyone in a leadership position, feels vulnerable at times. We all have weaknesses. Everyone is imperfect.

Leaders need to take time to identify their vulnerabilities. And, in certain situations, they need to be comfortable admitting them.

Leaders should have a trusted adviser or coach who is able to provide them with candid feedback on their weaknesses. This will help leaders become more self-aware and less insulated.

There are many instances where leaders won’t know an answer to a question or problem. They should admit this and not be afraid to show it to those they lead.

Most people expect that from leaders and are conditioned to screen for leaders who seem to be overly confident. It’s far more difficult and gutsy to show vulnerability or weakness.

When you show your vulnerabilities, you are being authentic, and that helps others to see you as trustworthy. In other words, let people see your whole self rather than picking and choosing the aspects you want them to see.
