What Authenticity Looks Like

Being authentic is very important for leaders, especially today. People want to know the behind the scenes you is the same as the you on stage. If they do not they won’t believe in you and they certainly won’t want to follow you. It is a result of our information overload society. We have gone from never letting them see you sweat to needing to be vulnerable.

That’s a tough balance to navigate.
