EI Sunday Supplement: Authenticity
Show Notes

When we express ourselves openly and effectively, and when we honor our commitments, we’re practicing authenticity. Being authentic involves expressing emotions to at the right time, to the right degree and to the right people.

When leaders practice authenticity, they’re described as genuine. Leaders who are lower in these skills are often described by others as untrustworthy.

In episode three of the EI Sunday Supplement by HR Gazette, we explore why authenticity is key to leadership goals and how it can positively influence performance, engagement, and overall success.

Listen as we explore the profound benefits of emotional intelligence training for business leaders and how it can enhance their effectiveness, drive employee engagement, and lead to organizational success.

Authenticity is important to being an effective leader because:

  • It helps leaders create understanding, openness and feelings of trust in others
  • Leaders who are behave guardedly, avoid conflict, or are inappropriately blunt about the way they feel can create mistrust, artificial harmony and misunderstandings with those around them
  • Leaders need the people they’re supervising to be open with them, and modeling this behavior themselves will encourage it in others
