What is his unique voice?
Authentic leadership is an approach to leadership that emphasizes building legitimacy through integrity. Authentic relationships value input and are built on an ethical foundation. Authentic leaders are positive people with truthful self-concepts. They promote openness by building trust and generating enthusiastic support from their colleagues.
While many believe leadership success in different cultural contexts requires an understanding of difference, Greg believes the key is embracing similarities. While fashion, food and flags might mislead us in believing we are all very different there are some principles and values that prove our motivations are most often the same, even when the signs and signals might mislead us to think otherwise.
Personal behaviours reflect values and beliefs. Values and beliefs are what inspire people to follow. Change begins with the first step and Greg’s mentoring shows and teaches what good leadership looks like not only in the workplace but in our daily lives.
Systems thinking requires a move in our attention away from a linear step by step approach to understanding the interconnectedness of all behaviours. While traditional approaches demand constant supervision, compliance and attention a systems approach allows us to understand the dynamics and to harness its energy. Productivity increases and we create sustainability when we solve problems and implement solutions based on a systems approach.
