Is Pursuing Authenticity a Trap?

The New Rules of Business

Nov 5 2021 • 35 mins

The ruling sentiment is to “be your authentic self” at work — but is it that simple? As a leader, how much of yourself should you bring? Can pursuing authenticity actually be a trap for women and those of marginalized identities? Lindsay and Carolyn talk with researchers Frances Frei (Professor of Harvard Business School) and Anne Morriss, co-authors of Unleashed: The Unapologetic Leader's Guide to Empowering Everyone Around You, to share how executives can create a culture of acceptance from the top. Plus, legendary business badass Cindy Gallop joins for an unfiltered conversation on what authentic leadership really looks like.
