What’s acting got to do with it?

jodiefosterWhat can business people learn from what great acting is?

Acting is all about communicating vulnerability, allowing the truth inside yourself to shine through regardless of whether it looks foolish or shameful. To open and give yourself completely. It is an act of freedom, love, connection.

Actors long to be known in the deepest way for their subtleties of character, for their imperfections, their complexities, their instincts, their willingness to fall. The more fearless you are, the more truthful the performance.   

Jodie Foster, Daily Beast, 8/15/12

Why not be fearless? Why not be authentic? I’ve heard said that ‘vulnerability is the new power.’

Think about how powerful our relationships could be in business with this type of truth?
