In this frank discussion, Matt reveals how his perfection obsession nearly destroyed his own business, and how he learned that leading with vulnerability counterintuitively strengthens the organization. He shares what led him to embrace vulnerability-based leadership…
“I had suddenly realized I wasn’t genuine. I was not authentic. I was not listening. And this created a disconnect from the people I was working with.”
…and how when he chose to be vulnerable, and showed up as his true, flawed self, it immediately created stronger connections with his team and liberated its members from the fear of making mistakes.
Hear from a reformed perfection junky how trying to be flawless holds you back, and how allowing yourself to be seen as the imperfect person you are, by the imperfect people who work for you brings them on side. How vulnerability knocks down walls and serves as a welcome mat for those afraid to show their true hand. How it builds new pathways to genuine teamwork based on mutual respect, listening, delegating, accepting fresh ideas, and learning from all outcomes, be they triumphant or botched.
