Blakes Women in Leadership Series: The Authenticity Paradox of Leadership

Blakes Women in Leadership Series: The Authenticity Paradox of Leadership
October 18, 2022 - 12:30 PM - 1:45 PM

The only way we grow as leaders is by stretching the limits of who we are….

Herminia Ibarra

In Part Two of our 2022 Women in Leadership Series, Professor Herminia Ibarra will take a deeper dive into authenticity in leadership and why it can be a double-edged sword. We all want to be authentic, but a too-narrow understanding of the principle can obstruct personal growth. We tend to latch on to authenticity as an excuse to stay in our comfort zones, especially to avoid feeling like an imposter. In this session, Herminia will use live coaching moments to show how challenging our sense of self can actually help expand our capacity as leaders. She will also share strategies that can help us develop an “adaptively authentic” style that feels right to us and suits our organizations’ changing needs.
