Can Vulnerability Be Sexy in Leadership?

“Can Vulnerably be sexy?”

You might have been screaming “hell no” As images of some guy weeping in a corner flashed in your mind.

Well today, we are going to really challenge our concepts about Vulnerability, what it is, how badly we misunderstand it, and why it may indeed be one of your greatest assets.
