Short Video on Importance of Authentic Leadership
Authentic Leadership Counts!
Question: What’s the connection between authentic leadership and the building of an indispensable business?
Of course, every leader wants their business to be the one customers prefer. That said, this question is a solid one to consider.
Certainly, authentic leadership is compelling and engagaing. It helps leader to gain “followership.” More importantly, disengenuous behavior is easy to see through. When detected, it is a huge turn-off. Unfortunately, it leads to sub-optimum business performance, too. Staffers just will not give their best effort to a leader that they don’t respect.
By the way, my latest book, Indispensable: Build and Lead A Company Customers Can’t Live Without covers the topic in great detail.
