Authentic Leadership - Here it is
Authentic Leadership and emotional intelligence, when paired with professional and technical excellence, provide a powerful differentiator for organizational leaders in the 21st century. Emotionally intelligent leaders are self aware, can self manage through all kinds of situations, and have excellent relationship building skills.
Authentic Leaders have high levels of emotional intelligence and are able to live and lead consistent with their authentic self – who they are when at their best, and living more of the time consistent with their values and vision.
Our Information Warfare community Flag leaders (RADMs Rogers & Brown, RDMLs Leigher, Filipowski, Tighe and Metts) have all (each) expressed that "our people are our greatest resource and our true difference maker." Our IW Flag leaders owe it to us now to show the authenticity of their leadership by demonstrating the truth of that statement through their deliberate actions and interactions. Our Sailors are watching, waiting, judging.
