Why Should Anyone Be Lead by You?

What It Takes to Be an Authentic Leader

Gareth R. Jones and Robert Goffee

Jones and Goffee show us how the best leaders build off of their individual strengths and just be themselves. Good leaders stick to their truth and can adapt their behaviors based on the situation at hand. They just “know themselves.”


This eyeopener is a great way to start a program with a question for every leader, Why Should Anyone Be Lead by You? We use this often at the beginning of a program to create awareness about how important authenticity and purpose is for leadership.
