More about Authentic Leadership Effectiveness for Senior and/or Executive Leaders​

Authentic Leadership, a leadership by presence and beyond position, can be defined as being true to self, and true to one’s leadership purpose, with a strong moral underpinning, for the greater good of all that we serve.

To develop such leadership, we need to be self-aware, both of who we are and how we have become so, in order to understand the internal compass that drives us, consciously or unconsciously.

We need to understand how that internal compass can be strengthened to support us in who we need to be as Senior or Executive leaders.

This allows us to self-regulate our decisions and behaviours so that we can steer True North especially during uncertain times, in this case during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. In doing so, we can then influence the systems we form part of, to do the same.

“What do we need to do together as a team to meet the needs of the greater system, now and in the future, that we could not do apart?”

–  Peter Hawkins (2017)

Authentic Leadership Effectiveness (ALE) Masterclass – for Leadership Teams and General Organisational Teams

Lencioni (2002) states that it is not finance, not strategy, not technology, but teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and yet so rare.

In this Masterclass – you will get an understanding of how sustainable systemic Authentic Leadership Effectiveness can be developed in teams and organisations.  This virtual or face-to-face Masterclass is a very effective way to gauge the need and appetite for the enhancement of positive senior or executive leadership effectiveness in any organisation.

More about Authentic Leadership Effectiveness for Teams

Team effectiveness is dependent on levels of foundational trust in the team, which in turn is dependent on the clarity of the team’s purpose, in line with expectations of their stakeholders.

This allows teams to develop teamwork that remains the ultimate competitive advantage, both because it is so powerful and yet so rare.

The link between authentic individual and team effectiveness is that authentic leaders firstly develop trust within themselves, and then between themselves and others. Authentic leadership (AL) therefore is what is required to build the solid foundation of inter-relational trust, required in any effective leadership team and organisation.

In systemic AL team effectiveness, five systemic pillars need to be in place in order for your team to be sustainably agile and effective, not only now but also in the future; not only in calm waters but also in stormy weather.
