What Authentic Leadership Looks Like

What Authentic Leadership Looks Like | Artful Interventions | Scoop.it
Authentic Leadership is a hard thing to define. I’ve heard many definitions of it and given more than one myself. But here’s a “definition” I believe works every time: Authentic Leadership is ...
Rachel Lovie's insight:

If you remember only one thing about a person make sure it's their name - I recall reading this many years ago in "How to in friends and influence people" - it's a simple strategy but sometimes it can make all the difference, particularly on second meetings.

Rachel Lovie's insight:

A lot of truth in this, there're too many people spouting 5 stages of this and 7 steps to that, often misquoting or reinterpreting to suit their own rhetoric. The business world seems to love the idea that complexity can be dealt with in a linear step process...ah, the hubris of desiring such certainty is doomed to failure!

Living and Leading with Authenticity

Living and Leading with Authenticity | Artful Interventions | Scoop.it

To be authentic one must be "awake," meaning you have the ability to understand who you are, what you want to be, and how you want to fit in the world.

Rachel Lovie's insight:

At last, a really good and practical article on the subject.

Bryce J. Renninger:  "As transmedia has come and gone as a buzz word and various other words have come to take its place (will we agree on "Interactive storytelling"?), two things remain certain:  The National Film Board of Canada has devoted the most resources, time, and energy to ensuring this mode of storytelling evolves and excites, and the work of Katerina Cizek is absolutely unmissable."

Kathy Hansen's curator insight, July 26, 2013 4:29 PM

[Disclaimer: "Kathy's Insight" is usually simply another pithy excerpt from the Scooped article] 

The key focus is on choice points: moments in our lives when values are formed because of a need to choose in the face of great uncertainty. When did you first care about being heard, or learn that you were concerned about the issue on which you want to take action? Why? When did you feel you had to do something about it? Why did you feel you could? What were the circumstances? What specific choice did you make?

 
Hans Heesterbeek's curator insight, July 29, 2013 10:44 PM

Nice article, I likes especially the graph. I choose the emotional way, I think most storytellers will. Getting people engaged that i what it is all about and doing that in a honest and for me authentic way. Some nice tips for leaders and how to get started. 

Jacqueline Farrington's curator insight, June 30, 9:32 AM

Personal narrative is a key tool in helping to form one's leadership identity - the foundation of executive presence.  Executive presence is much more than simply "looking, sounding and behaving" like a leader. For all leaders, but especially for women and multi-culturals, it must begin with identifying oneself as a leader and understanding the values that led to leadership. Excellent article on how storytelling can begin to do that.

zoe in wonderland: Leonora Carrington: Liminal Spaces | Artful Interventions | Scoop.it

"The paintings of Leonora Carrington are filled with odd creatures in the midst of ritualistic activities and unusual interactions. Their intense colors and inherent strangeness bring you to the mindset of a dream, and they offer a doorway outside of your own world, the usual time and space. She draws you into a liminal space: the in-between, the not-quite-real, but somehow almost recognizable. "
