Andy Lopata talks to Adam Harris, Executive Coach and informal mentor in this edition of The Connected Leadership Podcast. They discuss Frank and Frearless Leadership; asking the question, 'can leaders be vulnerable?'  Leaders need to have the right conversations, at the right time with the right person.  Great leaders evolve all the time but many are in denial, not recognising the need to change and not recognising their blind spots. Leaders should be self-reflective and vulnerable enough to ask for feedback. Getting out of the comfort zone: see Jehari Window https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-d&q=Jehari%27s+window
