The Vulnerable Leadership Style for a Prolonged Crisis Like Covid-19?

In complex, uncertain, circumstances like in the current situation, the vulnerable leader (fully truthful, admits and apologizes for mistakes, asks for help, works on personal defects, is participatory (Theory Y)) trumps the fearless leader (outwardly confident, fearless, tough, certain, macho).
That is the view of Amy Edmondson (also known for her work on psychologically safe workplaces) and Tomas Chamorro-Premuzik.
According to the authors, "In a complex and uncertain world that demands constant learning and agility, the most apt and adaptable leaders are those who are aware of their limitations, have the necessary humility to grow their own and others' potential, and are courageous and curious enough to create sincere and open connections with others. They build inclusive climates with psychological safety that foster constructive criticism and dissent. Above all, they embrace truth: They are more interested in understanding reality than in being right and are not afraid to accept that they were wrong. This allows them to welcome criticism not because they like it any more than the rest of us, but because they know it's necessary in order to make progress."
