Abstract

A survey of over 12,000 global employees reveals that people are more willing to go the extra mile at work when their manager is open and shows vulnerability. Allyson Zimmermann writes that these employees tend to be more creative, dedicated, and willing to go “above and beyond”. Leaders who show vulnerability and empathy are stronger, not weaker. Their teams tend to feel psychologically safer, and to express themselves more freely without fear of making mistakes.
