Authenticity and public gaffs

Authenticity and public gaffs

Interesting that in this otherwise fascinating article in The Economist, the word ‘authenticity’ only came up once. If you’re a boss of any sort (politics or business), your first step should be to get in touch with your own authenticity and check how aligned this is with a) the organisation you lead or represent, b) expectations of your stakeholders, and c) the prevailing zeitgeist. Yes, presentation and avoiding-gaffs training can help but better still, get the thinking, the emotions and the behaviours right. The bonus is that you’ll feel less nervous about making a gaff when out and about in public because you’re not second-guessing what might constitute a gaff. There’s a bonus in doing this: you get to lead your organisation better and your staff also get to live a culture of authenticity
