The Value in being an Authentic Leader

Authenticity is a term bandied about as though we all understand who we are and what our “authentic selves” stands for and believes in. When I began to explore what authenticity means, this definition by Mind Tools made sense to me: “authenticity means you’re true to your own personality, values, and spirit, regardless of the pressure that you’re under to act otherwise. You’re honest with yourself and with others, and you take responsibility for your mistakes. Your values, ideals, and actions align”.
