  1. Erika, terrific points. I think leaders who admit need to learn build more trust with their teams. People can tell if you don’t really know what you claim to. I also like the fact that you addressed the bad feelings that come with being new at something. So many people avoid learning because they don’t want to “look stupid.” Mentors might be able to help here. They can share their own experiences with “looking stupid.”

    • So sorry it’s taken me so long to reply – I didn’t check back for comments. Thanks for your kind words – so glad it resonated for you. You might also enjoy Be Bad First, my new book on which this article was based.

      Warmly,
      Erika

      • Thanks, Erika! I’ll definitely check out the book.
