Being real and present with your feelings will show up in statements like, "I'm really not sure where to go with this, what would you do in my situation?" or "I need some help here."
Getting it out in the open creates a space for authenticity and truth. That's what leaders should model and replicate inside their organizations.
If you're in a management role, being real and emotionally honest gives your team members permission to do the same. You will experience more connection and more honest conversations as a result.
