Becoming an Authentic Leader: The Cold Hard Truth

March 18, 2021 / 12:00 pm (EDT) 1:00 pm (EDT)

Over the ages, the topic of authenticity has intrigued philosophers, writers, theologians, psychologists, ethicists, and even business executives. While it has been referred to as “the gold standard for leadership,” work on the topic of leader authenticity has come under fire for lacking a realistic conceptual and evidence-based foundation. Denise Potosky, professor of management and organization, and John J. Sosik, distinguished professor of management and organization, examine leaders’ relationships with the truth and present a new evidence-based model of leader authenticity and its implications for organizational training. The webinar focuses on five key areas: What “authentic” means, the elements of authentic leadership, pitfalls of the authentic leadership literature and consulting practices, the pinwheel model of leader authenticity, and actionable tactics to develop your leader authenticity.
