Vulnerability: Why It’s Important in Business and Relationships with Lianne Kim

36: Vulnerability: Why It’s Important in Business and Relationships with Lianne Kim

“Vulnerability” is a buzzword that we hear fairly often these days, but why is it so important in building a business or nurturing a relationship? Vulnerability can add a level of depth and connection that would otherwise be difficult to reach.

In this episode of Couch Time with Amy Wine, I am chatting with my friend and business coach, Lianne Kim, about why vulnerability has been essential in her business. 

Lianne Kim is the Founder & CEO of Mamas & Co. which is an online community of moms who run their own businesses. In the community, moms connect, support and inspire one another through sharing their experiences and goals.

I am also sharing all about an experience and realization that I had on the topic of vulnerability in this episode from when I did my first BETA group for my marriage course.

On Today’s Episode, You’ll Discover:

  • Why vulnerability is important for being a leader
  • The question I was taught to ask during counseling 
  • Reasons why people hold back from vulnerability
  • How to share from a place of service instead of oversharing
  • The disconnection that comes from avoiding vulnerability
  • The value of attracting and repelling people in content creation 
  • My rule of thumb for vulnerable conversations – especially with your spouse

I hope that our discussion and our personal stories show you that putting your authentic self out there can be a rewarding and enriching way to improve your connection with others.
