Richard Dillard, PMP, SSBB, ABD 7.1's curator insight, November 24, 2013 12:58 PM

It is true...at the end of the day, if Leaders are to become REAL and Authentic, they will be vulnerable before others (those they serve) and will have to come to terms with their own limitations.  In fact, awareness and acceptance of who we really are provides the essential ingredients to action and achievement in the Leadership Enrichment LIFE-cycle.  Never stop learning, changing, growing and leading...mostly about yourself as a leader and about the impact you are having on others.

John Michel's curator insight, April 9, 11:39 PM

Truth is, empathy, being open to understanding the perspectives, emotions, thoughts, concerns, and motives of others is not about embracing blind agreement in order to please those around you. Rather, it’s about being open to better understanding others and working to gain an increased appreciation for their circumstances.

There are many definitions within management and business literature of authentic leadership but, as a rule, authentic leaders tend to be genuine, transparent and trustworthy, display a strong moral code and can be counted on to keep their word.

Good leadership requires us to avoid our initial reactions when someone does us wrong.  To lead positive change when dealing with someone who has insulted, excluded or belittled us, we need to drum up the courage to rise above the other action and explain to that person why their behavior is detrimental to the success of the team.
