Good Afternoon  ,

One of the desirable traits of leadership often touted is vulnerability.

What exactly is vulnerability?

Seems to me there's often confusion on that. Many people think vulnerability indicates weakness. Others think it's abdicating authority.

In the article we focus on this week, Karyn Danielle explains that true vulnerability actually indicates strength of character. You can read much about Karyn here. Besides all that, she' s a coach I met on LinkedIn who often contributes to The Unity Community .   Always good stuff!

Karyn explains that vulnerability is:
  • Asking for help when you need it - and asking in a way that providing help is empowering to the helper.
  • Letting people see that you're not invincible - you don't always have all the answers. (Sometimes this is where you ask for help.)
  • Trusting that others won't harm you, even if you give them the chance!
  • True vulnerability indicates strength of character.
She also explains what it's not, which helps clarify her definition:
  • It's not sharing your greatest struggles in life.
  • It's not disclosure.
  • Above all, it's not weakness!
For many leaders, the question of vulnerability is an enigma. Karyn tells of one client who told her he never wants to be perceived as vulnerable! Hopefully Karyn's article will help you understand genuine vulnerability and improve your leadership.

How's 2019 Shaping up for You? 
Imagine going to a unique networking event. At this special event, you find all your ideal prospects waiting to talk to you.

Our proprietary process can give you this kind of exposure to the people you want to help!

We find and start conversations with your ideal client prospects. Then we communicate your value, and get them to schedule appointments with you...all on autopilot. This can happen for you! Learn how here.  
When you join Smart Money Network's Business Accelerator Platform , we:
  • Edit your LinkedIn Profile Page so it better attracts people in your market. 
(What painful issue do you resolve for your clients? If your LinkedIn profile describes how you make your clients' lives better, it's rare! Most describe the merchant's qualifications and expertise. They say little about what he/she does to eliminate clients' pain.)
  • Search LinkedIn's hundreds of millions of members for the few thousand who match your ideal client profile. Y ou define your  best prospect for us .  
(Even if you can find these people manually, it will take hours away from your work with your current clients.)
  • Invite about 100 of these best prospects every day to connect with you on LinkedIn.
  • .Send a welcome message to those who accept your invitation and connect.
(Typically 15% or more. Currently nearly 40% of my invitees are connecting.) 
  • Deliver something of value to them from you, and then do it again! 
  • Begin a "drip campaign" of carefully timed messages, continuing to provide value. These messages give...give... give...and then ask. No pitches!
All of these messages come from you personally. We want and expect your input in developing them...unless you want us to just do it. You can follow the threads and adjust your messages as you see better ways to engage your prospects. We're always ready to talk with you about improving your messaging.
Want to "ripen" an opportunity with a direct personal message? Take over the exchange manually whenever you see a "hot" prospect you want to engage with your unique message.

About John

Throughout a career spanning over 45 years my management style has been one of building teams to bring several competent people together to focus on a common objective. I noted early in my career that, in most organizations, there is an enormous amount of time, energy, and effort wasted by people working at cross purposes.

As I transition to life in the Argentine outback, my focus shifts from coaching to helping other business coaches and advisers get their message out to their prospective clients. With my first-hand knowledge of the benefits of effective business coaching, I am uniquely qualified to help business advisers of all stripes convey their message.
