Authentic leadership

Authentic leadership

Research shows that authentic leadership may improve team performance compared to traditional management.

Authentic leadership is a concept that was first formulated by Harvard professor Bill George, who was convinced that new leaders and innovative leadership styles would help corporations recover financially.

The emerging theory of authentic leadership encourages managers to be genuine, self-aware, and transparent when guiding their teams.

The benefits of authentic leadership

Authentic leadership is viewed as an antidote to unethical leadership. An authentic leader will appear more reliable and trustworthy.

In traditional leadership, managers work in a way that does not align with their personal values. This can be perceived as confusing to colleagues and may cause the team to work without direction, reduce satisfaction and lower overall productivity.

Conversely, authentic leadership makes it easier for co-workers to recognise your values, follow your instructions, and understand your expectations.

How to become an authentic leader

There are five essential dimensions of an authentic leader: purpose, values, heart, relationships and self-discipline.

Principles when leading a team:

  • Define your ethical values and ideals of leadership. Those values should guide your decisions as a leader.
  • Practice self-reflection through journaling, self-awareness exercises, or investing in a career coach to identify your strengths, weaknesses and thought processes.
  • Foster relational transparency. People will like working with you if you are transparent about your thought processes.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
