INAUTHENTIC LEADERSHIP – by Kurt April (August 2011)


Inauthentic leadership

In the moment

In the long-term

Manifest often in expressive, destructive emotions


Not just for the individual


Dissonance diffuses

Contagious emotions

One, others, team

Helplessness abounds

Organisations and communities, too


Appearing political at best

Mainly toxic at worst, at its core


Negativity demands attention and focus

Judgement sets in

Gets skewed


Some become paralyzed, frustrated

Others resist the leadership itself

While still others withdraw



Resonance lost
