Are you authentic? I think authenticity is one of the most important qualities of a leader.
What does it mean to be authentic?
1. Care more about those you lead than your own image
2. Have a realistic view of your actual values
3. No matter your size always be willing to leave the 99 for the 1.
4. Reinventing yourself needs to start with values transformation not clever marketing. (Neiman Marcus is a perfect example of this.) Great commercial to bad it reeks of in-authenticity.
