Summary

Authentic leadership is a persuasive and popular idea that continues to gain traction in terms of management thinking. Authentic leaders give people a sense of control and agency that makes them feel better about themselves, their future and their work, sparking change and transformation. But authentic leadership can never be static if it is to be truly successful; authentic leaders need to reassess and reinvent themselves and their organisations in order to address the changing emotional and social demands of their followers.
At the same time, in the midst of such renewal, it is vital for them to maintain their own authentic voice and power. Drawing on a host of examples, from executives of multinationals, political leaders and sports leaders, as well as nearly two decades of research, Yours Truly examines and explains the missing link in research into authentic leadership: how leaders strive for success, excellence and constant renewal while at the same time maintaining core principles.
Margarita Mayo presents the three characteristics that differentiate authentic from nonauthentic leaders in a practical framework called the 3 Hs - Heart, Habits and Habitats - that listeners can use as a measurable guide to developing their own authentic power:


Contagious passion that wins the hearts of others
Setting new habits and empowering others to act on their behalf towards their vision
Enriching their habitat to ensure long-lasting influence

Ideal for managers, senior executives and aspiring leaders, Yours Truly captures the value of authentic leadership in transforming organisations, stripping away the apparently magical, innate charismatic qualities of leaders in order to showcase a less mysterious and more practical process that can be followed by anyone.

An engaging insight on what it means to be a leader

I love how well-thought out it is and how Mayo included small assessments at the end of each story so the reader can be more than just a passive audience
