Abstract

Rationale: The Authentic Leadership: A Master Training program features an exploration of best models and research theories that support the successful development of authentic leadership skills. The primary goal is to enhance the leadership skills of professionals based on the authentic leadership theory. In addition, it offers opportunities for self-reflection, personal development, and practical exercises.

Objectives: Showcase of an innovative program developed based on the five main characteristics of authentic leaders by Bill George: understanding of purpose, strong values, trusting relationships, self-discipline, and acting from the heart (George, 2003).

Methods: The first phase intends to enhance training participants’ self-awareness. During this phase, participants will explore purpose, mission, values, behaviors, talents, skill, and abilities. In the second phase, participants will review effective strategies for self-discipline and high-performance and promote individual development in areas of conflict resolution, organization, and planning skills. The third phase will target effective relationships, coalition development, and dealing with self-vulnerability.

Conclusions: The program starts by providing self-assessments to promote a better self-understanding, followed by opportunities to identify areas of individual development such as self-discipline and conflict resolution. The training explores effective ways to create and maintain strong relationships by creating awareness of communication strategies, emotional intelligence, and professional success through embracing vulnerability. Participants will have the opportunity to assess their values, behaviors, talents, and skills, learn important authentic leadership characteristics, and reflect on how they can implement the new learning in their professional life.
