The business world has learned the importance of not only strong leadership but of authentic leadership, which focuses on skills such as creating genuine, real connections that come from the heart, as well as setting a mission, purpose, and vision with integrity and consistency.
According to a study in the Leadership and Organization Development Journal, employees’ perception of authentic leadership serves as a strong predictor of job satisfaction and can have a positive impact on work-related attitudes and happiness. They believe that authenticity creates better work relationships, higher levels of trust, and more productivity, as well.
Authentic leadership, however, doesn’t happen overnight and isn’t just important in the workplace. Instead, it starts in your personal life by identifying your own sense of purpose, passion, and motivation to lead your own life from the inside out, so you can better lead others.
