[IE MBAⅠ: Yours Truly Authentic Leadership]

Do you want to find your passion that wins the hearts of others? Do you want to learn new habits to become a future-proof leader?

Do you want to build authentic workplaces in harmony among all employees? Since the financial crisis, distrust of employers among the workforce has dramatically increased due to a lack of authentic leadership. But how can leaders become and remain authentic?

Yours Truly draws on a host of inspirational examples from executives of multinational corporations to political leaders and sports leaders,as well as more than two decades of research, in order to examine and explain the missing link in research into authentic leadership: how leaders strive for success, excellence and constant renewal, while remaining true to one’s self.

Margarita Mayo introduces the three characteristics – Heart, Habit, and Harmony – which differentiate authentic from non-authentic leaders. Presented in a practical and dynamic framework, her talk provides a measurable guide to developing your own authentic power. Ideal for managers, senior executives and aspiring leaders, Yours Truly captures the value of authentic leadership in transforming organizations in the digital era.
