Authentic Leadership Rediscovered

Authentic Leadership Rediscovered | New Leadership |

In the last 10 years, authenticity has become the gold standard of leadership. This is a sea change from 2003 when I wrote Authentic Leadership. Back then, many people asked what it meant to be authentic. Authentic Leadership was intended as a clarion call to the new generation to learn from negative examples like Enron, WorldCom and Tyco. In it, I defined authentic leaders as genuine, moral and character-based leaders: "People of the highest integrity, committed to building enduring organizations … who have a deep sense of purpose and are true to their core values who have the courage to build their companies to meet the needs of all their stakeholders, and who recognize the importance of their service to society."

Is becoming an "authentic leader" just an excuse for practicing a rigid management style? Bill George, who pioneered the idea, says critics don't understand what constitutes an authentic leader.

Enduring principles, endure for a reason :)

The Power of Conversational Leadership — HBS Working Knowledge

The Power of Conversational Leadership — HBS Working Knowledge | New Leadership |

"In many cases you have an executive team that's so sure about company strategy, but then you go inside the organization and find that nobody else has a clue,"

A strategic conversation based on 4 elements:

Intimacy is about leadership. Interactivity is about channels. Inclusion is about content. Intentionality is about goals, vision, and the strategy of getting things done.
