About the Session

Authenticity is a buzzword these days. The truth is, it’s more than just a fad. Authenticity is critical for your influence as a leader. Millions of employees are leaving their jobs. The fallout from this trend is costly. You can create a better workplace where people want to work and feel valued by earning followership as a leader of authentic influence.

As an authentic leader, you engage as the situation requires in a way that is ethical and true to who you are, aware and accepting of your own strengths and flaws. You become skilled at adapting authentically, with a genuine concern for the outcomes that result from your influence.

The practices introduced will help you gain more trust as you elevate your influence and impact.
