True authenticity is based upon curiosity rather than certainty. If we’re truly being authentic with one another we’re learning every moment so that we’re constantly adjusting. Authenticity is about correction not perfection.
Connected leaders can help inspire authenticity and increase employee engagement within organizations by:
- Surrounding yourself with people who think and act differently than you
- Give people a voice and learn from their different viewpoints
- Remember that truth accelerates success and fear decelerates truth
- Trust that truth will accelerate achievement
