Last month I had the pleasure of working with Global Leaders from Warner Bros. Discovery, unpacking the concepts around “Presence” – defining presence, exploring factors that sabotage presence, examining the components of presence, and discovering new ways we intentionally choose to power our presence by assessing and addressing our skills in this area. It was a lot of fun and I am clearly still perseverating on those discussions.

So much so that when I came across an article, recently published by the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University, it had me wishing I could share it with those in attendance. (So here you go, those Thought Partners in attendance!) The article presents interesting data correlations between authenticity, competence, and fault admissions.

I like to think I can admit when others are stronger than me in certain situations; therefore, I admit that reading the article yourself will be more impactful than if I attempted my best effort at summarizing the salient points.

It’s a quick read and I hope you find it as interesting as I did. Please let me know your thoughts and feel free to forward this Thought Partner (and all Thought Partners, for that matter) to someone who needs to read this as well.

Happy Reading!
