In the past, showing your vulnerability in the workplace would no doubt have been seen as a sign of weakness. But increasingly, leaders are starting to see how embracing vulnerability is key to building authenticity, and ultimately strength. However, whatever stage you’re at career-wise, facing into vulnerability is not an easy journey to navigate – it can be challenging asking for help when we feel most exposed. So at our recent 10 Digital Ladies meet-up, we decided to delve into this tricky topic: how do you work with vulnerability to build your own strengths, as well as those of others around you?
So, sharing really is caring! The more we are open and honest with ourselves and those we work with, the more we can progress and move forwards. Don’t be afraid to embrace your vulnerability! Thanks to all our panellists and members who attended.
Remember, if you have any thoughts on working with vulnerability and would like to share them with us please comment below or join us on Twitter or Instagram at @10digitalladies. As always, we encourage our community to offer ideas for our next 10 Digital Ladies book!
