#TChat Preview: The Authentic Side Of Leadership

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 26, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET.

Last week we talked about the power of professional prospecting via LinkedIn, and this week we’re going to discuss authentic leadership and why it’s needed more than ever.

Authentic leadership is all about developing yourself in a manner that helps others see the complete you. This includes all your strengths, imperfections and accomplishments. We all crave authenticity and you have to be real in order to be heard.

Join #TChat co-creators and hosts @Meghan M. Biro and @Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about better leveraging LinkedIn and professional prospecting with this week’s guest: Todd DeWett, PhD, author of The Little Black Book of Leadership and inspirational keynote speaker.
