EP026: Authentic Leadership: How to Remove Your Mask and Lead By Your Values

Authentic leadership. How can you lead authentically? How can you lead by your values? This is a common question I receive from many emerging leaders.

You want to feel like you’re presenting a true version of yourself at work.

Perhaps you want to know how to remove your mask and lead more in flow with who you are.

Or maybe you want to show your true self in your workplace interactions.

All of this is absolutely possible. You can lead authentically. But the first step to achieving this is uncovering your core values – the values that drive your actions, opinions, thoughts and decisions.

In this episode, I guide you through how to uncover your core values with a three-step activity that I do with my coaching clients. This activity will help you understand what values drive you and are important to you so you can then incorporate them into your work life.
