Innovation, creativity and vulnerability in business discussed in this FT profile of Brené Brown:
“By being scared of being embarrassing, you prevent yourself being creative. “When I talk to leaders about disruptive innovation they tell me the greatest barrier is people’s fear of being laughed at. There has never been a truly innovative idea put forward that was not laughed at.”
In her ideal corporation, everyone puts themselves on the line, understanding that risking exposure is part of succeeding.
“Vulnerable leaders are leaders who stand up and say: ‘We have a problem here. I can’t solve it alone. I need your help, I need all hands on deck’.””
