Authentic Leadership: The Truth for Leaders

Leadership theories abound. Yet what is true, authentic leadership? This is a question that new leaders must face and veteran leaders must address in a changing world.

Joining me as co-host for this discussion in our global #Peopleskills Twitter chat will be Sabine Clappaert, founder of the Dare to Dream Project. Sabine comes at the topic of authentic leadership from the guts of instilling in youth the courage to dream big. She is a communication expert and journalist specializing in gender, diversity and leadership. She hails from Belgium and reaches to South Africa and Australia with insights on inclusive leadership.

What is True Authentic Leadership?

People skills community moderator, Dave Moore asks: Who are you when nobody is looking? Does that form the basis for your leadership style and behaviors? In the past, leadership was defined by specific behaviors. As the world continues to evolve we see a changing definition of leadership. It may cause leaders to reflect on “What is their authentic leadership?”

Some questions to get us thinking in advance:

  • How do you define authentic leadership?
  • How does authentic leadership differ from other leadership styles?
  • What are the benefits and pitfalls of authentic leadership?
  • What marks the language of authentic leaders?
  • How can leaders balance authenticity and objectivity?
  • How far should authentic leaders go in showing their vulnerabilities?
  • In what ways does authentic leadership add to or detract from authority?
  • How do team members know if leaders are being authentic?
  • Is it possible to be totally yourself and still lead diverse people?
  • When does authentic leadership have the greatest impact?
  • What people skills help leaders to balance the challenges of authentic leadership?

These are just some questions to get us thinking. Actual questions will post live during the chat.

So bring your personal perspective, your experience, a beverage, and join the community on Sunday June 22, 2014, 10am EDT in People Skills Chat on Twitter (hashtag: #peopleskills). Share your creative views and experience in our people skills chat on authentic leadership.
