Authentic Leadership: Why Doing It Right Is The Right Way?

Becoming an authentic leader starts with knowing who you are, what your values are, and what your vision is for your organisation and the world you live in. Authentic leadership relates to how a person communicates, both internally and externally, how he/she makes decisions (especially difficult ones) and how he/she demonstrates integrity towards the volunteers, employees, donors, and the public. It requires a high level of self-awareness and courage to be vulnerable. Authentic leadership is strongly connected with ethical decision-making, transparency, and building trust.
