CREATE PSYCHOLOGICAL SAFETY IN ONE EASY STEP
"

When it comes to leadership, be the first to admit your mistakes.  You need to make sure you fall on your sword and more importantly, do it publicly.

Vulnerability is absolutely critical. It’s not just a fancy buzzword that people are using.  It gives your team permission to make mistakes as well.  You are creating Psychological Safety when the team isn’t afraid of making a mistake and, more importantly, admitting it.

💡 Leaders are the trailblazers who go first, and when they stumble, they set a path for their teams to follow. So, when you make a mistake – which we all do – don’t just quietly fix it; own it, share it, learn from it, and don’t let your team repeat it.

Doing so can….

1. Prove that you’re not striving for some unattainable perfection but for authenticity.

2. Reveal your human side, forging a deeper connection with your team.

👀 Think about it – as employees, we sometimes see leaders as untouchable figures, not quite human. But imagine the transformation when a leader says, “I messed up” publicly.

💪 Falling on your sword isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a symbol of strength. Apologizing and saying ‘my bad’ isn’t about losing face but gaining trust.  

🚀 So, if you want to strengthen your leadership game, start with vulnerability. This magnetic force binds teams, fosters trust, and ignites a culture of openness.
