In Part Two of our 2022 Women in Leadership Series, Professor Herminia Ibarra will explore authenticity in leadership and why it can be a double-edged sword. We all want to be authentic, but a too-narrow understanding of the principle can obstruct personal growth. We tend to latch on to authenticity as an excuse to stay in our comfort zones, especially to avoid feeling like an imposter. In this session, Herminia will discuss how challenging our sense of self can actually help expand our capacity as leaders. She will also share strategies that can help us develop an "adaptively authentic" style that feels right to us and suits our organizations' changing needs.
