Presenting yourself as "you" in the workplace is not as easy as you would think. In a world of social media where perception is reality and fact is conveniently overlooked, there is extreme pressure on us to watch what and how we say our truth. This is especially important for managers who act as the temperature gauge for "culture" within organisations: the good, the bad and the ugly. It's not surprising that authenticity is such a hot topic - people don't know how to be themselves for fear of offending, for fear of being ridiculed and rejected.
But authenticity is essential for leaders, for it is our marker for right and wrong and without it we may compromise one time too many and lose ourselves for good. How do we navigate authenticity as leaders?
In this webinar we will discuss:
Why authenticity is difficult
The difference between speaking truth and being “politically correct”
How to step into your truth
How to embracing and role-model authenticity within your team
