A Better Leader's insight:

So True.  We are constantly hearing about the velocity of changes companies are experiencing, from tech innovations, marketing methods, to restructuring and new initiatives.  It seems that many are standing on shifting sand versus foundational rock.

 

These situations have tremendous impact on employees who are feeling unsettled in this environment, as well as managers who are suppose to lead them and for the organizations that employ them.

 

And here is one part of the fallout, several North American surveys in recent months have indicated that roughly half of all employees are unhappy in their jobs and a third actively want to quit.  Think about that!  Companies have employees on the payroll who are mentally unengaged or have already quit mentally.  This must be a wake up call as organizations depend on people to remain competitive and innovative.

A Better Leader's insight:
<< Employee MotivationWhat Is Authentic Leadership?

It continues to surprise us how many leaders attempt to be one way at work, while their "true" personality emerges outside of work. Once a CEO reminded us, "Leadership is acting." And it surprises us when these same leaders seem shocked or confused when their employees don't trust them, don't like them, and can't really wait to work elsewhere.

Authenticity has been explored throughout history, from Greek philosophers to the work of Shakespeare ("To thy own self be true." -Polonius, Hamlet). Authentic leadership has been explored sporadically as part of modern management science, but found its highest levels of acceptance since Bill George's 2003 book, Authentic Leadership.

12 Rules for Being YOU

As a leader, it is very important to understand yourself and to be yourself. Trying to be anyone else is a waste of the person you are. Embrace that individual inside you that has ideas, strengths and beauty like no one else. Be the person you know yourself to be – the best version of you – on your terms. And above all, be true to YOU – if you cannot put your heart in it, take yourself out of it. If you are not true to you, you will not be true to others and where is the joy in that?
