How do we know if someone is authentic? Authentic really means being real – being who you really are. Can you recognise authentic behaviour? Very often we can recognise those who speak from a deep place compared to those who are too busy worrying about what everybody else think. Being authentic is powerful, and people who are authentic can communicate in a most effective way. Authenticity combined with integrity is a very powerful force indeed. Look out for these characteristics.
In the modern organisation leading with authenticity means not just talking the talk but walking the talk.
