In this week’s reading of Palanski and Simons (2012) article about authentic leadership, the authors hypothesize that authentic leadership has a positive impact on employees’ attitudes and job satisfaction. Do you agree with their hypothesis? What examples have you seen that refute or support their assertion?
REAL LIFE APPLICATION: Choose an authentic leader who has had a significant impact on you and discuss why this person made such a positive impact and how they have shaped your beliefs about effective leadership. Alternatively, describe a leader who has not led authentically, why this person had a negative impact on you, and how the experience has shaped your beliefs about effective leadership.
