Today I did a workshop on authentic leadership with mid-level corporate leaders. I associated authentic leadership with leading from strengths and modeled this by facilitating their discovery of new ways of being authentic simply by drawing from their own strengths. The last piece of feedback was a poignant testament to the media and message: Of all our 6 workshops so far, yours was the best and you dis far less talking than we did.
This is the power of facilitated learning, whose purpose is not to create confidence in expers but confidence in one's own strengths. These are lessons that will serve these emerging leaders well.
