"Leaders who are vulnerable are far more trusted by their employees," says Ori Brafman, bestselling author of <i>Click: The Magic of Instant Connections</i>. Brafman explains that vulnerability, while often seen as a weakness in business, is a valuable skill that can play a critical role in binding deep, immediate relationships in the workplace. To illustrate this point, Brafman shares the unique story of a hostage negotiator's willingness to reveal vulnerability to help form an intense, but unlikely, relationship.
