Compassion, curiosity and courage. Three great traits of authentic leaders.
Having compassion for your workforce, having compassion for your team is all about recognizing when they are going through their own hardships, their own struggles, their own difficulties just as you indeed have gone through yours. Being curious, being interested, genuinely interested in what is going on in the lives of each member of your team and having the courage of your convictions to speak your truth, to speak your mind, to be bold, to take risks, this is something that a great leader is always conscious of. Having the courage to connect, having the courage to be true to yourself and stand up for what you believe, what you know is good for you and good for your team and good for your business. Be the courageous leader, be the authentic leader.
