STRATEGIC VULNERABILITY & TRUST IN THE WORKPLACE

ON BIG BLEND RADIO: Lea Brovedani “The Trust Architect” talks about vulnerability and trust in the workplace. Watch here in the YouTube player or download the podcast on Spreaker, PodBean, or SoundCloud.

The Five Levels of Vulnerability to Trust:

Level 1 – At this level you are sharing information. “Nice weather.” “Here is the report.” You are not being vulnerable. There is no risk to trust because you are not sharing any opinions or beliefs. When you first meet people you may start here.

Level 2 – When you go to level two, you start to show a bit more of who you are. You may start sharing your likes and dislikes. It starts to test the other person’s reactions. It’s still a safe place to be since you can distance yourself if you feel threatened or criticized. Still low vulnerability.

Level 3 – At level three you start to take small risks and share your own opinions, thoughts and beliefs. Some people who have high levels of self-trust start at level three. Some may decide it’s too risky to give an opinion and move back down to level two. You are showing a higher level of vulnerability here.

Level 4 – At level four you start sharing your feelings and experiences, and open yourself up by talking about your joys, triumphs, pain and failures. This level is more vulnerable because you are sharing personal information. A decision has been made that this person with whom you are being vulnerable is trustworthy.

Level 5 – You show who you really are, warts and all. There is no fear that what you share will be used against you. This level involves a great deal of vulnerability, but also gives you the deepest relationships. For some people this level is only given to family and friends we’ve known for a long time that have proven they can be trusted.
