Developing as an Authentic Leader

Authenticity is the foundation of great leadership. In this course, we look inward at the core of leading others, and yourself: you. We initiate the life-long process of deepening self-awareness, the cornerstone of emotional intelligence and a strong predictor of job performance. This means getting clear on who you are as a leader, where you’re going, and what supports and hinders you from getting there. We add those pieces together to craft a leadership vision unique to you. Backed by decades of research in psychology and organizational behavior, we’ll introduce foundational tools and mindsets that enable you to build a more aligned, purposeful, successful career (and life).
