The greatest leaders have the self-awareness to recognize this fact and that showing their vulnerability is a sign of courage and strength.  I found an interesting article  about vulnerability that I found to be very insightful.   http://www.smartbrief.com/original/2017/04/power-leadership-vulnerability?utm_source=brief

Delighting in the possible By Zafer Achi and Jennifer Garvey Berger

I was forwarded an insightful article by my professor, Dr. Sharp. Achi & Berger states, “Moving from “managing the probable” to “leading the possible” requires us to address challenges in a fundamentally different way.”.

Remember, great leaders exemplify integrity by being honest and doing what is right no matter the circumstances. Integrity requires you to make the right choice, even when you may not receive personal gain from the outcome, and to put your own personal agenda aside for the greater good of the organization and the people.
