Leadership isn’t about titles, status, or wielding power. A leader is someone who recognizes the potential in others and has the courage to help them develop their potential. When we dare to be leaders, we don’t pretend to know the right answers; we remain curious and ask the right question. We don’t see power as finite and hoard it; we know that the power becomes infinite when we give it away to others. We don’t shy away from difficult conversations and situations. Instead, we embrace them and use them to our advantage.
“Brené Brown has been studying human emotion for the past twenty years, and the past seven she’s been working with transformational leaders and teams across the world.”

But daring leadership in an environment where scarcity, fear, and doubt are the norm requires skill building around traits that are deeply human. The irony is that while we’re trying to figure out what we need to offer that machines and artificial intelligence can’t do better and faster, we’re choosing not to invest in building leaders’ hearts and minds. What can we improve? Social abilities like empathy, connection, and courage, are a good starting point.
