I’ve had some really purposeful and enlightening conversations this week about BEing ‘Real’.
I see so often leaders who completely believe that as a leader they mustn’t be vulnerable in any way – and for some this belief means demanding that they show confidence and are never seen to not know the answer. Or else of course they hold themselves as weak, incompetent and are run by the fear of losing their job or someone else being better.
So what about being real? Rather than ‘acting’ more confident, bringing more of YOU forward and leading from a heartfelt purpose, not a fear of not being enough or getting it right in some way.
No-one else can ever be YOU. No-one can have the same thoughts, be creative in same way or bring to the table your unique style of leadership.
Be bold, be brave, be real!
