“Authenticity is your most precious commodity as a leader” - Marcus Buckingham Authenticity in leadership requires courage because leaders take risks to realize their vision and take responsibility for their mistakes. The word courage is from “Coeur,” the French word for heart. Good leaders put their heart into motivating developing and challenging people to navigate difficulties and uncertainties together; they risk being disappointed and even betrayed.
