Five touchstones of authentic leadership l.jpg
Five Touchstones of Authentic Leadership

  • Touchstone One: Know Yourself Authentically

  • Touchstone Two: Listen Authentically.

  • Touchstone Three: Express Authentically.

  • Touchstone Four: Appreciate Authentically.

  • Touchstone Five: Serve Authentically. (Cashman 1998).

Touchstone one know yourself authentically l.jpg
Touchstone One: Know Yourself Authentically

  • “Know thyself,” appears in the writings of Ovid, Cicero, and Socrates, in the sayings of the Seven Sages of Greece, on the entrance to the temple of Apollo, in Christian writings and in Eastern texts.

  • If we want to be more effective with others, we first need to become more effective with ourselves.

  • Practice being what you wish others to become.

Touchstone two listen authentically l.jpg
Touchstone Two: Listen Authentically.

  • Listening authentically is centered in the principle of psychological reciprocity:

  • to influence others, we must first be open to their influence.

  • Authentic listening is about being generous—listening with a giving attitude that seeks to bring forth the contribution in someone, versus listening with our limiting assessments, opinions and judgments.

  • Authentic listening is about being open to the purpose and learning coming to us through the other person.

Touchstone three express authentically l.jpg
Touchstone Three: Express Authentically

  • Authentic expression is a delicate subject for many leaders. Integrity goes far beyond telling the truth. Integrity means total congruence between who we are and what we do.

  • Authentic expression is the true voice of the leader. We speak from our character and it creates trust, synergy and connection with everyone around us.

Touchstone four appreciate authentically l.jpg
Touchstone Four: Appreciate Authentically.

  • As leaders we tend to do too much and appreciate too little. Love is an extreme case of appreciation.

  • Appreciation is one type of self-expression that creates value.

  • It energizes people and makes people want to exceed their goals and perceived limits.

  • Criticism may get short-term results but usually doesn’t add long-term value. What it does add is fear and insecurity.

Touchstone five serve authentically l.jpg
Touchstone Five: Serve Authentically

  • Ultimately, a leader is not judged by how well he or she leads, but by how well he or she serves.

  • We serve our organization. We serve our people. We serve our customers. We serve our marketplace. We serve our community. We serve our family. We serve our relationships.

    The real job is to serve all the constituencies and to appreciate genuinely the fact the only through our interdependence with others do we create value.
