No man is an island – Should I really show my “vulnerability” at work? 4(4)

Relationships are crucial for our success and happiness.

Good news is that you are hardwired to have better relationships – it is anthropological and tribal. To see what the research tells us, we need to go back some 70.000 years in time – back then, if we didn’t belong to a certain tribe, we would most certainly fall pray to a predator.

The key is not necessarily to figure out new stuff, but to tap back to who we are as humans and to investigate what we are made of – in order to really connect with one another.

There are two skill-sets that will help you connect with people who matter to you, try them:

1. CHOICE (good relationships are a choice and they are not accidental)
– Choose to have better relationships
– Choose to care (don’t just try to be liked) and find a way to care about others
– Choose to be helpful and of service

2. VULNERABILITY (as a superpower for building a good relationship)
– Capacity and courage for self-disclosure will help you connect with other people
– Be yourself – a bit of authenticity and transparency goes a long way
