Dan Allender on Leadership Vulnerability

“. . . to the degree you face and name and deal with your failures as a leader, to that same extent you will create an environment conducive to growing and retaining productive and committed colleagues.”

“. . . to the degree you attempt to hide or dissemble your weaknesses, the more you will need to control those you lead, the more insecure you will become, and the more rigidity you will impose — prompting the ultimate departure of your best people.”

“. . . Prepare now to admit to your staff that you are the organization’s chief sinner.”

— Dr. Dan Allender, Leading with a Limp: Take Full Advantage of Your Most Powerful Weaknesses, pp. 3-4
