Authentic Leadership

Authentic leadership consists of three pillars: (1) Authentic presence, i.e., the choice to take personal responsibility for who we are; (2) Skillful communication, including self-disclosure, inquiry and conflict resolution based on emotional competencies; and (3) Effective action motivated by service that is compassionate and empathetic. Authenticity is choosing moment-to-moment to be completely present to the situation and to synchronize mind, body, and communication in all interactions.
