I am meeting more and more leaders all over the world who are uncomfortable with receiving positive feedback from their employees, managers, and their coach. Sometimes the discomfort is purely cultural but most often it is behavioral. Regardless of where the discomfort originates, it can be more destructive for a person not to openly accept and embrace their gifts and strengths than accept their weaknesses. The key to unleashing greatness in leaders and everyone is in making the decision to be vulnerable. Are you willing and able to accept and embrace both your gifts and weaknesses? Can you handle both positive and negative feedback from your boss, employees, coach, spouse, children? If you are not completely vulnerable, it is impossible then to create your compelling future as you must be able to create and execute a plan that leverages your gifts and addresses your weaknesses. If your greatest leadership weakness is your unwillingness to accept your gifts, you have identified a real obstacle that will prevent you from becoming the best leader and person you can be!
