Join our Authenticity@Work Movement. Here’s more information about it.
The Authenticity@Work Movement
Let’s face it. We spend more of our waking hours at work than any other place most likely. Let’s make our work a place where we can thrive, learn, innovate, and create an impact that really inspires us!
Margaret Mead said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
My dream is to connect with and support a community of people who want to bring greater authenticity to our workplaces. I would like for us to have workplaces where people are inspired by the work they do, connect with others in authentic ways, bring their full energy, insight, and creativity to make work better.
The Authenticity@Work Advocate
Our advocates are people who believe in the movement and are willing to contribute to creating an impact on the culture in their workplace and spheres of influence.

The Ten Commitments of Authenticity@Work
Since we firmly believe that authenticity begins with YOU, we ask that you sign these ten commitments of Authenticity@Work. These ten commitments summarize the important practices of authentic leaders as discussed in the book Wired for Authenticity.
You can download them and post the list where you will see it often to remind yourself of how you can show up as a more authentic leader every day. Remember, it’s a practice!
- I commit to a daily practice of connecting within to be centered in my authentic self.
- I commit to express my point of view and also listen with open curiosity to others’ point of view.
- I commit to returning to my most inspired self when I find myself disengaged.
- I commit to choosing who I am BEING as I make decisions.
- I commit to letting go of judgments I make of myself and others.
- I commit to creating a culture of openness where diverse points of view are heard and debated.
