In today’s work environment, the lines between our professional and personal lives are blurred more than ever before. Whatever is happening to us outside of our workplace – whether stressful, painful, or joyful – follows us into work as well. We may think we have to keep these realities under wraps and act as if we have it all together. However, we can work better, lead successfully, and be more engaged and inspiring if – instead of trying to hide who we are – we show up fully and authentically.
I'm Mike Robbins, a speaker and executive coach, and your instructor for this course. I've spent more than 20 years researching, writing, and speaking about leadership, teamwork, and high-performance. My clients have ranged from Google to Citibank, from the US Department of labor to the San Francisco Giants. From small startups in Silicon Valley to family-owned businesses in the Midwest. From what I've seen and studied over the past two decades, I believe that for us to thrive as leaders and to have the kind of impact we truly want to have on others, it’s essential to lead with authenticity.
Authentic leadership is about acknowledging that we’re all vulnerable, imperfect human beings doing the best we can. It means having the courage to take risks, speak up, have compassion, ask for help, connect with others in a genuine way, and allow ourselves to be truly seen.
In this course, I outline the five key principles from my book, Bring Your Whole Self to Work, that we can use to approach our own work in the spirit of openness and humanity, and to help the people we work with feel safe enough to do the same, so that the teams and organizations we’re a part of can truly succeed.

Content was easy to understand. I like how the instructor broke down the topic into a few key sections and gave enough details in each forms to walk away with a better and deeper knowledge that collectively helped me understand the broader topic of authentic leadership. Tips and resources were helpful, practical, and relevant.
This was a great course for me to take right now. It's nice to hear these ideas said aloud and laid out to plainly and logically. As a new manager myself, I want to make sure that I'm being authentic and also be a good leader for my immediate and expanded team.
So far it's been exactly what I expected, even better than other courses on this subject that I've been a part of.
to the point. shares studies statistics, explains current facts, and gives tips on how solutions can be applied.
I really enjoyed the course as it gives a good perspective on leadership. A lot of powerful examples.
Very easy to understand and really works out simple, everyday premises that we think we think we are masters of. This course will probably be difficult for those who haven’t done any shadow-work in their lives! For those who have, it’s a great educational experience.
Enjoyed every minute of the course. You can tell that Mike is experienced and knows his field. Good to have him confirm that research has sidelined some previous leadership methods.
I really like how Authenticity was broken down into an equation. I didn't think of vulnerability as part of Authenticity.
Thank you, Mike Robbins for the great presentation on the subject matter of, "Authentic Leadership: Bring You Whole Self To Work.'' It was thorough, thought provoking, illuminating and useful. Thank you for sharing your career (baseball) .Why Is This Happening For Me ? Moment. It was an AH HA Pause...Job Well Done! Thank you !---LL
