The Strength of Vulnerability

Guest: Jacob Morgan

Season: 9 Episode: 42

There is strength in vulnerability. It sounds like a Zen master’s saying, but it’s a fundamental truth of today’s workplace: leaders who display vulnerability have greater success.


But there are five different aspects to vulnerability, and Jacob Morgan shares them with host Maureen Metcalf. The loud, short-tempered leader who pretends to know it all is outdated and now hinders the growth of organizations. Jacob helps build stronger connections within your team — and beyond.


Here’s what Jacob and Maureen cover:

  1. The common thread of vulnerability Jacob discovered interviewing 100 top CEOs;
  2. The big difference between being vulnerable and vulnerability; and
  3. The benefits of vulnerability for a leader’s personal growth, professional success, and building a thriving organization.
