Authenticity at Work

Authenticity is so crucial for leaders and managers to understand. I love to open up my leadership workshops with the following challenge to the leaders in the room: "You don't control anyone. You can have tremendous influence on those around you by controlling the only person you can which is you" Some people get into trouble by marrying someone for their "potential", thinking they can change them over time. Usually that doesn't turnout well! Great teams don't evolve by changing people. They evolve from creating an environment that motivates them.


Authenticity is so crucial for leaders and managers to understand as it relates to their employees. Authenticity means that each of us comes with our own set of strengths and weaknesses and that we have a gift to give this world that only we can give. I love to open up my leadership workshops with the following challenge to the leaders in the room:
“You don’t control anyone. You can have tremendous influence on those around you by controlling the only person you can which is you”
Authenticity means we are who we are who we are and that the core values we develop growing up rarely change over our lifetime. Some people get into trouble by marrying someone for their “potential”, thinking they can change them over time. Usually that doesn’t turn out too well!
Great teams don’t evolve by changing people. They evolve from creating an environment that motivates them.
