Authenticity is essential to the success of leaders. Authentic leaders demonstrate a passion for their purpose, practice their values consistently, and lead with their hearts as well as their heads. They establish long-term, meaningful relationships and have the self-discipline and emotional intelligence to get results. They know who they are.
