Becoming Who You Really Are:
Learning To Do What Organizations Cannot Do For You
Robert E. Quinn
Warren Bennis wrote that becoming a leader is becoming who you really are. Research shows, counter to conventional thought, that people of transformative power develop a characteristic called idealized influence. They become models worthy of admiration, respect, trust and emulation. They live from a moral core that generates attractive power. Without authority, they can draw the best out of others. Conventional assumptions prevent us from seeing, understanding or aspiring to this condition. This limitation constrains organizational efforts in leadership development. Organizations cannot do what they spend much money trying to do. They can develop managers but they cannot develop leaders. This means we have to own our own leadership development. This session will explore how to become who you really are and how to help those around you to do the same.
