Vulnerability is NOT just another feeling


Trusting teams are characterized by people who feel safe to express vulnerability and hence feel psychologically safe with each other.This is the reason why Trusting Teams are high performing teams..

Adopted from the following quote of Simon Sinek highlights that Vulnerability is indeed a special feeling..

“There is a difference between vulnerability and telling people everything about yourself. Vulnerability is a feeling. Telling everyone about yourself is just facts and details. “

When do we feel safe to express vulnerability?


Members in a Trusting Team feel safe in the company of each other.

They feel free to express their vulnerability since it is a high trust envrionment.

It is basic human nature for trust to develop when we feel safe to express our vulnerability.

Hence Trusting team turn out to be High Performance teams.
