Organizational Development Consulting
Authenticity is not just a “leadership thing.” It is a phenomenon that impacts every single person. We all feel higher or lower levels of authenticity based on a variety of factors, including our personal history/experiences, our environment and the roles we play. In organizations, leaders are “gatekeepers of systems.” They create and shape the rules and expectations of behaviors in organizations…leading to the establishment of values, norms and culture. As members of these systems, employees essentially enter into agreements on how they will show up and how work will get done. So, asking employees to bring their authentic selves to work can create tremendous resistance because who they truly are and their agreement on “how to be” in the organization often are not aligned. The future of organizational develop requires a new perspective and new approaches for the future workforce. Increasing organizational authenticity is a viable solution for this set of problems.
