The power of my vulnerability when I spoke my truth on that TEDx stage was that ‘my connections deepened rather than weakened’.

Vulnerability is something leaders like Howard Shultz, CEO of Starbucks value.

Shame & vulnerability in the workplace, showed up for me as dysfunctional behavior, self-sabotaging behavior, self-loathing behavior’. ‘Success camouflaged all of my unworthiness’.
