Because effective leaders are in great demand, but short supply, the question all citizens should ask is not “can I lead, but “how should I lead?” In this module, we will explore the value of leading authentically and the key steps in an authentic leadership process. We will also examine our own leadership approaches and learn how we can align our approaches with other aspects of our working and personal lives.
Robert H. Moorman is the Frank S. Holt Jr. Professor of Business Leadership at the Martha and Spencer Love School of Business, Elon University. He also serves as the Co-Director of the Leadership Prize scholarship program and teaches management and leadership courses to both undergraduate and graduate business students. He teaches executive development programs in leadership most recently for the National Corn Growers Association, the American Soybean Association, and Otago University in New Zealand. Professor Moorman’s research interests include the study of leader integrity, leadership dysfunction, organizational justice, and the performance of organizational citizenship behaviors.
By the end of module learners will know:
- How the primary purposes of leadership inform our understanding of how to be effective leaders.
- How we tend to lead and whether these tendencies fit our leadership demands.
- How we can enhance our authenticity by aligning our values, words, and deeds with our leadership approaches.
