Authentic Leadership


Learning Format: Classroom

In today’s world, change is the only constant. In a world that is constantly changing, leadership is an increasingly essential skill. Many programs teach the behaviors associated with great leaders. They promise that if you act a certain way or say a certain thing you can be a great leader. However, great leaders recognize that the only way to become a great leader is to focus on making these behaviors part of their own character. Through development of character, leaders become the best leader they can be.
An Authentic Leader is one who commits to character development. Authentic leaders recognize self-awareness as the most important attribute of great leaders. They commit to recognizing and understanding their own behaviors. They develop themselves as leaders by studying the behaviors associated with great leaders and focus on how they can integrate these behaviors into their own lives.

This course is designed to help leaders learn what they need to do be become more effective leaders. Participants learn fundamental skills that are crucial for authentic leadership and begin applying them to both their work and personal lives.
