Are You An Authentic Leader?

“Whatever you are, be a good one.” – Abraham Lincoln

I have observed that many of the performance, human resources and leadership issues inside a CPA firm could be eliminated very easily if partners (owners) would simply do what they say they will do.

If you are an owner/leader of a firm, you need to be authentic.

Here’s what Seth Godin has to say about being authentic:

We call a brand or a person authentic when they’re consistent, when they act the same way whether or not someone is looking. Someone is authentic when their actions are in alignment with what they promise.

Showing up as a pro.

Keeping promises.

Even when you don’t feel like it.

Especially when you don’t.
