    Making vulnerability your strength

    Making vulnerability your strength

    What do you do when you feel like an imposter or feel inadequate? Fake it till you make it? Or be forthcoming with your shortcomings?

    Our guest Charlene Leung shares how when she first transitioned from individual contributor to people manager (less than a year ago!), she felt the pressure to project all-knowing confidence in order to earn the respect of her team, even when that confidence was false. But she came to see that putting up this false front was counterproductive, and that when she was willing to be vulnerable with herself and her direct reports, it brought her team together, built trust, and eased the anxieties that had often kept her up at night.

You’re not alone

An honest, open and insightful dialogue on the hurdles of managing a team, staff or boss. “You’ll manage” is the therapy you never knew you needed and the support group that you didn’t know you had. Listen in the morning and get motivated for the day.
