Ep 36 | Embracing Vulnerability & Transparency for Ultimate Growth
March 3, 2022
What does it look like to show up as your authentic, vulnerable, messy self at work and in life, and engage in real dialogue about the most difficult, divisive, and polarized issues of our times? Charlie and Nico Page, a HR Business Partner with LinkedIn, have a deep conversation about the last few years of racial identity politics, leadership responses, policy creation, power structures, privilege, and discomfort. Beginning with a personal anecdote about giving a speech in which Nico had real emotions rising yet felt a need to ‘perform and be on brand’, the conversation takes in the George Floyd case, how and for whom identity policies are made, a riveting explanation of what D.E.I. actually means, and what it might take to bring real healing and reconciliation to communities. Embracing vulnerability and transparency, and being able to get out of my own shoes for a day, and experience what someone else’s reality is really like…….is what ultimately leads to growth.
