Leading others begins with leading yourself. And leading yourself begins with knowing yourself. That’s why successful leaders commit to continually improving their self-awareness and professional development.
Self-leadership for leaders
Authentic leadership is a style of leadership that is based on an ethical foundation and honest relationships with people whose input and diverse opinions are valued. As an authentic leader you are visionary, creative, inspirational and innovative.
The four pillars of authentic leadership are knowing yourself, being genuine, being fair-minded and doing the right thing. Authentic leaders make wiser decisions and enjoy better relationships creating natural organisational and business growth.
