It’s never been so important to be trustworthy. It’s never been so important to be someone others respect.
It’s never been so important to keep the promises you make to your teammates and
And it’s never been so essential to be authentic.
I should also add that it’s never been so hard to show authenticity because of all the social pressure to be like everyone else.
Media, our peers, and the world around us pound us relentlessly with messages designed to have us live their values versus our own.
There’s a huge pull to behave like the majority. But leadership really is about closing your ears to the noisy voices of others so you can more clearly hear the mission and call within your self.
Make me think of the words of Dr. Seuss: ” Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
That’s what authenticity is all about.
