Last month, we shared that Paula Singer recently presented a webinar on the topic of leadership to the Urban Libraries Council's membership. In her presentation, Paula emphasized the critical role that modern leaders must play in increasing and maintaining organizational relevance.
This month, we present part two of Paula's webinar, Self Awareness & Authenticity: The Making of a Progressive Leader. Stay tuned for the final installment in the series. If you missed Part 1 on the five practices of progressive leaders, please click here to read it.
Self-Awareness & Authenticity:
The Making of a Progressive Leader
The five practices of progressive leadership provide much insight into the leadership behaviors required for high-functioning organizations in today's world. But truly embracing and modeling the five practices requires more than learning a set of behaviors. It requires a fundamental shift from a focus on doing to a focus on being.
In other words, progressive leadership is grounded not in what a leader does, but in who the leader is - how they "show up" in the world.
Today's leaders are finding that bringing their attention within - and working toward a more authentic expression of themselves in the workplace - is helping them become far more effective in leading their organization to greater results.
So, how do you develop the self-awareness and authenticity required for exceptional leadership?
