Expert Insights Vol.2: Honest Leadership for Sustainable Transformation

Expert Insights with Bernhard Reingruber
Thursday, January 13, 2022, 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm

About the session: 

In most startups & organizations nearly every one of us has a second job no one is paying us for: covering our weaknesses, trying to look good, managing other people’s impressions, and avoiding conflict. The ultimate cost: neither the organization nor its people are able to realize their full potential: No vulnerability  no trust → no real conflict → no path for constructive conversations and improvement (and not even an afterwork beer can change this in the long run!) 

  • There may be no greater waste of a company’s resources. 

  • There may be no greater waste of personal energy, aliveness, and time. 

But what if we were to see vulnerabilities as prime opportunities for personal and company growth? What if we bring our more real, messy, vulnerable, or not so “shiny” sides to work? What if we prioritized connection over controlling impressions and had the conversations that we usually avoid creating a culture in which we can overcome our internal barriers to change? This is the potential of Radical Honesty as a communication tool and Conscious Leadership as an approach to bringing about change. So, get out of your comfort zone, share whatever there is to share and deepen your awareness in the process! 

What will you learn from Bernhard? 

  • What is so scary about honesty and how to do it anyway 

  • The difference between Brutal Honesty and Radical Honesty and why it matters 

  • Why you should make getting over anger, sadness, appreciation, etc. a priority 

  • The effects of withholding on yourself, your team, your startup and what the alternative is
