#28 Why is Vulnerability so important and SO HARD with Carl Shawn Watkins
Opening up can be frightening and many people grapple with vulnerability. Perhaps you wish to feel more connected to others. You may also want to be genuine, brave, honest, and accept who you really are. But something prevents you from feeling secure that affects you personally or professionally. It's simple to talk about vulnerability, but difficult to put it into practice and alter our perspective. It's very difficult because it means looking deep inside yourself and admitting unpleasant things or painful truths. Our STANDOUT guest, Carl Shawn Watkins, is a survivor of abuse, addiction, and depression. He uses his public platform to empower and encourage people to turn life’s setbacks into success. During our conversation, he is going to share with us about living and embracing your vulnerability and how a vulnerable leader empowered those who they lead.
