Imagine what would happen if your organization was full of Authentic Leaders

To lead effectively, an individual must first find their Authentic Leadership style – the clear and unique expression of their leadership that convinces others to trust and follow them. 

By being true to themselves, clearly motivated by a larger (higher) purpose and not a narrow self-interest, Authentic Leaders demonstrate high integrity—making sound decisions independent of political expediency—and deliver results in a way that creates sustained value for the team.

Authentic Leadership Institute programs provide practical, field-tested strategies for individuals, teams, and organizations to tap into the power of Authentic Leadership.  The Institute is successful because we are:

  • Research based through collaboration with Harvard Business School professors Bill George and Scott Snook
  • Experienced providers in fact, the most experienced providers of Authentic Leadership programs with the longest track record of success
  • Working with over 4,000 top executives at global multinational corporations and large NPOs
