This presentation explores the critical essentials of being an authentic leader. It also discusses an individual’s resources to be that authentic leader. Beyond that, the presentation talks about the five dimensions of authentic leadership. Additionally, we will discuss the two mountains in a person’s life, the mountain of acquisition and the mountain of contribution, and one can move from one to the other. This uses multiple EO member examples of Clarity of Vision, Certainty of Intent, and the Power of Values. Many examples will be used from Warren’s sports, corporate, political, community, and family life. These will help to highlight how attendees can utilize their own unique experiences to become more authentic in all they do.Open to: EO Members, Spouse/Guest, Accelerators, Prospects, Partners
