Abstract

This article proposes a framework for authentic leadership based on: authenticity in leadership actions and interactions; vision derived from the good intentions-intentionality-of committed people; spirituality which is built from engagement in meaningful relationships and from a sense of being connected to something larger than self; and from sensibility to the feelings, aspirations and needs of others, with special reference to the multicultural settings in which many leaders operate, and in the light of the increasing globalization trends in life and work. The authors argue that authenticity in leadership can help restore human, ethical, moral and spiritual dimensions to organizational relationships, thus making organizations better places in which to work, both in terms of productivity and quality of life.
