Highlight#4 from TCP Live#3 - Embracing Vulnerability by Shiela Cancino
People often associate vulnerability to a fear of being exposed, criticized or attacked for their flaws and mistakes.
Effective communication is often seen as a challenge in cross-cultural teams but those who show their vulnerability seem more human and approachable and invite more #opportunities for #growth and support.
On the contrary, leaders who come across as being always right and infallible run the risk of isolating themselves and losing touch with their teams.
Showing vulnerability keeps the communication door open for employees to bring not only their problems but also their ideas to make every aspect of the business better.
Watch this highlight from TCP Live on “How to build relationships in diverse cultures” to learn more about how Shiela used her vulnerability as a stepping stone to cultural integration and trust-building.
