By Being Authentic, You May Just Be Conforming | Leadership Development Across Cultures | Scoop.it
American-style leadership doesn’t work everywhere.
Ann Marie Lei's insight:

"It’s ironic that authenticity has become one more requirement to which a leader must conform, especially when you consider that it’s supposed to be an antidote to homogeneity. (After all, the message is to be yourself, not what someone else expects you to be.)  Yes, we must learn to connect with people in order to move them. But there’s more than one way of doing that. We lose something precious when we all converge to a single model of leadership."
