CHICAGO, May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ Leadership and communications expert David Grossman releases his most inspiring ebook yetRespectful Authenticity: Bringing Your Best to Work and Bringing Out the Best in Others. By telling the story of his own self-discovery, Grossman stresses the value of leaders living authentically so they can be their best selves, motivate their teams, and get results. Designed for leaders who wish to bring more of who they truly are to the workplace, Grossman walks readers through the process of getting there, regardless of where they might be on their personal journey.
"While the concept of authenticity has been around for a long time, I've added the word respectful to help distinguish it as a powerful tool in the workplace, and to eliminate the downsides that can come with using authenticity as an excuse to be painfully blunt, rude or closed off to different points of view," says David Grossman,ABC, APR, Fellow PRSA, CSP, Founder and CEO of The Grossman Group. "At its core, respectful authenticity is about being true to yourself and acting in ways that are consistent with your values."
In an era of leadership in a fast-paced business environment, respectful authenticity has never been more important, especially as high-profile business and ethics scandals fill the news. Grossman points out that authenticity isn't a skill. Instead, it's an approach leaders can take to lead a more fulfilling life by accentuating their talents and acknowledging and addressing their flaws, whether it's on the job, in relationships, or at home.
Grossman knows from research, consulting, and experience that employees feel more comfortable with an authentic leader. There are fewer question marks about what's on the leader's mind because employees know what to expect, and that's hugely motivating. People like them, follow them and they're influenced by them in a way that's seamless. Every person can benefit from being more authentic today.
The ebook provides the steps in the journey to respectful authenticity, including:
- What respectful authenticity means
- Why it matters and why it's so important today
- How to start on the path to respectful authenticity
