What is Authentic Leadership?

May 4, 2021

CEU Executive MBA faculty member John Branch defines the role of an authentic leader as follows: "...an authentic leader can be valuable to his/her followers because a leader who is genuine is inherently more valuable."

Forbes offers an overview of four key characteristics to keep in mind:

  • Authentic leaders are self-aware and genuine. 
  • Authentic leaders are mission driven and focused on results.
  • Authentic leaders lead with their heart, not just their minds.
  • Authentic leaders focus on the long-term.
