High-performance teams are cultivated by authentic leaders.
Authentic leaders have a deep sense of self-awareness and a strong understanding of how their words and actions impact others, which allows them to adjust their approach according to who they are working with or the situation they find themselves in. They are strong communicators who take feedback into consideration when making decisions, and this inspires trust.
When you lead authentically, you develop closer connections and a deeper understanding of your own ability to influence those around you. This leads to trust in your leadership, and that trust opens the door for you to boost engagement, lead through changes or other challenges, and foster a healthy team culture.
