What makes a brilliant leader?

A manager with confidence, good conflict resolution, and great organisational skills would be considered a great leader in any organisation. However, one quality that often goes unnoticed, but is primary to a leader’s ability to manage effectively, is the skill of being vulnerable.

The concept of vulnerability in leadership refers to a leader's willingness to be open, authentic, and transparent about their own limitations, uncertainties, and emotions. While traditionally, leaders were often expected to project strength, confidence, and authority, there is a growing recognition that vulnerability can be an important and positive trait in effective leadership.
