Episode 34: Authentic Leadership

Today we are taking a shift from sales to talk about the importance of authentic leadership. “Authentic” has been a major buzzword and we’re here to give you the straight talk on what this means for you, your business, and your leadership style.

The Pursuit of Badasserie: Authentic Leadership

Basically, it’s all about being the real deal. We’re talking genuine, transparent, and ethical behavior. Authentic leaders strut their stuff with self-awareness and self-regulation, walking the talk and earning trust like a boss. They’re not afraid to show a little vulnerability (and Amanda will talk about how much she hates this), because they know it’s a sign of strength.

So that’s what we’re covering today, in a nutshell. Tune in as we take on Authentic Leadership!
