What is Authentic Leadership?
Authentic Leadership from a Life Coaching perspective.
The holistic leadership practise of inspiring a shared vision so great that it inspires others to tap into their own creative, talented and skilful genius in order for the vision to be realised. It is a force of such potential that it can take people, organisations, institutions and nations from where they are to where they have only dreamed about. It is to be of service to others and to be part of something bigger that yourself. It is to understand and embody the leader that sits within us all. We all contain the potential to be an authentic leader. Our basic needs are to be an individual and still be part of something larger than ourselves. An authentic leader, knows their purpose, leads their own life with integrity and then inspires others to do the same. It is the duty of an authentic leader to help discover the genius that sits within everyone and then to stand back and let that genius create magic!
Becoming An Authentic Leader
This is no basic undertaking as it takes great courage to practise such methods. It is however, the courageous who go on to lead the world of change. Anyone who not only understands, but embodies such practices will see huge and positive changes in their own lives and especially so in the lives of those they have chosen to lead. When people feel good about their own capabilities, leaders will see inspiration, creativity, team work and motivation like they have never seen before. They will be able to challenge and push their team to new heights so their organisations will flourish. This is at the heart of true leadership. To allow others to be their own creative genius leaders and to allow their work and efforts to reflect such talent and skill. Great leaders are what this world needs and fortunately there is a great leader within all of us. With a bit of practise and patience, anyone can go from good to great in no time.
