It's All About Connection
When genuine connections exist that are trusted and shared, relationships can emerge in an authentic way without fear of judgment, diminished self-worth, or waves of shame due to mistakes made or perceived imperfections. Leaders can speak freely with compassion, care, and concern for those they serve. In the words of Dr. Brené Brown, we can "dare greatly" and bring excellence to fruition. Positive relationships improve climate and culture when we authentically show up to be seen for who we are, NOT what we think we need to be.
Connection is the Key
Courageous leadership is about stepping up and stepping out to make those connections that count, because in the end, the relationship is what matters. Look at the connections that have mattered the most in our own lives -- those connections that have had a major impact on who we are today -- and ask what is the "why" in this connection? Is it because of the actions of the other individual, the beliefs of the group, the affirming glance that said, "I understand," or the smile that felt validating? True connections tell us that we are alive, we count, and we matter. That message to the soul is, “I am lovable.”
