Leaders often wonder if their followers are looking for a leader who is stalwart or compassionate in dealing with issues or problems, but a leader might better ask themselves, 'Is my leadership style authentic'.


This article by Tiffany Danko and Susan Vroman, writing for Fast Company, makes the following points:
  • The biggest factor in deciding how to lead should not be external but internal.
  • While ‘authentic leadership’ has no clear definition, core themes include self-awareness and relational transparency.
  • The consensus holds that authentic leaders do what comes naturally to them.

Point to consider: Doing what comes naturally might not be what your followers need.
