What is an Authentic Leader?What are the attributes, skills and characteristics of an authentic leader (purpose & passion, values & behavior, relationships & connectedness, self-discipline & consistency, heart & compassion)?

A leader who shows that they care.

What does this look like in terms of behavior?

What does this sound like in language?

An authentic leader is able to lead as their best self. They have the ability to generate followers, and this can be measured by ‘discretionary effort’. What will your teams do when you are not there? We refer to this as ‘felt leadership’. Teams and individuals feel led even when their supervisor isn’t present. Teams perform well because they want to rather than because they have to, and this is because of who you are and not what you are.
CharterYou are guided through each of the five dimensions of authentic leadership to create a charter: purpose, values, relationships, self-discipline and heart. As a commitment, the behavior exhibited for each dimension begins, “I will..... ”. The final wording will be agreed by the delegates as their commitment.
