Leading With Authenticity

When we think of "leadership," it may be tempting to jump directly to the image of a high-powered, and charismatic executive or innovator. And while that may be true in some circumstances, the reality is that there are many different ways to demonstrate leadership. The important thing is to find a style and approach that aligns with the context you find yourself working in, and feels the most right to you. This is known as authentic leadership and, according to the experts, it is a vital component for organizations looking to navigate today's fast changing work landscape.

This course explores some of the foundational elements of practicing authentic leadership: uncovering your core value set, crafting a personal leadership philosophy, building genuine and trusting relationships, embracing empathy, and identifying your unique goals and vision towards becoming the best, and most authentic, leader you can be.

Leading for Legacy

The measure of effective leadership is based on the lasting effects long after they are gone.

As a leader grows, he or she begins to experience a shift in scope. They begin to think about the long-term results of their leadership – will they leave things better than they found them? Are they investing in the lives of their employees to help them be more competent and successful? Are they making decisions and changes now that will have positive results after they leave?

In this course, you will discover the five areas of leading for legacy; thinking and planning strategically, building alliances and relationships that produce win-win results, making ethical decisions that uphold and strengthen the core values of the organization, creating open and honest lines of communication with the people they report to, and initiating and driving meaningful changes.
