#25 The Power of Authentic Leadership with Nicola Connolly Byrne

The 360 Leadhership Podcast, Episode 25, 10 June 2022 by Lucy Gernon

Do you bring your authentic self to work, or do you wear a mask?

Do you lead authentically or do you leave your true self at home?

It’s hard as a woman in leadership sometimes as we think we have to have our professional persona and leave our real selves at home.

But when you do that, you cannot lead authentically. You will never truly be in your flow and never really be happy.

No matter how many masks you wear or faces you put on, you are never going to be able to please everybody. So it is time to allow yourself the freedom to live authentically, be it in work or at home.
