True North: 60 Second Summary

60 Second summary of Bill George’s latest book on how to be an authentic leader:

1. Leadership is about what makes you different; there is no perfect model of a leader
2. Stop trying to act like a leader; think ‘leadership’ not ‘leader’
3. There are five dimensions of authentic leadership: Purpose; Practising solid values; Heart; Relationships; Self-discipline
4. Engage people’s hearts and minds behind the organization’s purpose, rather than behind an individual leader
5. You can use authentic leadership to become a market leading organization; it’s about high performance, not about being ‘nice’ for the sake of it
