Authentic Leadership

Leaders that thrive today live and lead authentically. They are highly self-aware individuals with a defined purpose and set of values that influence their communication and guide their actions. This ensures that the way they see themselves matches the way their direct reports, peers, clients, and leaders see them. It's a transformative, inside-out process; one that makes employees want to work for them and peers want to work with them. 

In Authentic Leadership, your leaders will gain an understanding of who they are and who they want to be as a leader, along with how storytelling, personalization, and other communication techniques can help them lead authentically in every interaction. They will learn how to do so through facilitator-led group discussions, personal reflection activities, and other interactive exercises. 

This learning experience is part of the reflection stream of leadership communication. You can learn more about our development philosophy here.

Key Learning Outcomes

In The Humphrey Group's signature learning experience, Authentic Leadership, your leaders will come to understand the power of a personal brand and how to develop one. By the end, they will have the knowledge and tools to:

  • Set their intention, define the intended impact, and adapt their behavior according to the situation
  • Explore their values, how they are living them out, and how they can improve
  • Identify the triggers which undermine their ability to live their values
  • Communicate in a way that is authentic and aligns with their values
  • Envision themselves as an authentic leader and create an action plan to live it out

The Learning Experience

Authentic Leadership combines the best of self-directed learning and facilitator-led sessions. Your leaders will participate in discussions, periods of reflection, interactive activities with peers, and action planning, during which time they will have the opportunity to ask questions and receive feedback from their facilitator.

You May Also Consider

As part of our extensive content library, The Humphrey Group has a number of additional modules that complement Authentic Leadership. Here are a few of our top recommendations: 

Storytelling for Leaders

Storytelling maximizes a leader's effectiveness as it can be used to build rapport and connection that facts and information can otherwise fail to create.

One-on-One Coaching

One-on-one coaching is an ideal add-on to Communicating in a Virtual World as it gives each participant time with their facilitator to focus solely on them.

Leadership Presence

Teach your employees how to harness their authentic charisma and unique style to connect with an audience through verbal and non-verbal cues.

Additional Modules

To ensure your learning experience of choice meets your goals and needs, The Humphrey Group team can customize it with your add-ons of choice.
