Authentic leadership has been called the gold standard for leadership - but what does it mean, why might it be beneficial for leaders, the organisations they lead and the people that work in them?

It also provides some practical guidance for those wishing to become an authentic leader and how authentic leaders can choose a role and organisation in which they can thrive.
