Communication

Vulnerability

This video by Professor Brene Brown is a great introduction to understanding the importance of vulnerability to relationships.  Our ability to connect with others is key to effective leadership.  Empathy is critical to emotional intelligence. The video is well worth 20 minutes of your time.

How will you practice empathy over the next week? How will you encourage others to be vulnerable and empathetic?
