Leaning into vulnerability goes against everything your brain is instructing you to do! So why is it preferable if you want people to trust you?

Recently, when delivering a workshop on Resilience a participant described me as confident during our conversation on SOBs and I asked her to expand on what observable behaviours brought her to this conclusion. She expanded on how my story in the opening, where I shared a vulnerable experience and my learning from it, exhibited my confidence and increased my credibility.

In the #podcast episode I reflect on an experience I had where someone sought to manipulate me because of my vulnerability; I share more about that in social media and I am planning an entire blog post on the subject in a few weeks.
