A must-listen: the Leadership Podcast!

A must-listen: the Leadership Podcast!

Leadership is one of the hottest topics around. There’s a new article, podcast, opinion piece or blog about leadership published every few minutes. Pretty much anyone can call themselves a leadership coach – and lots of people from all walks of life claim that title. But many of them advocate unscrutinised and untested beliefs. Often, their opinions lack any form of scientific underpinning.

On the other hand, our Leadership Podcast takes a scientific approach to debunking popular but unfounded leadership theories. Every month our academics explore the research that uncovers the truth about leadership, what it is, and how to develop it.

Episode 1: Too much authenticity?

In the first episode of the Leadership Podcast we talk to Dr. Hannes Leroy about the virtues and dangers of authentic leadership. We explore whether the advice to "just be yourself" is any good, and discuss bridging the gap between feeling authentic, and being perceived as authentic by others.
