People from all sectors of society yearn for leaders who are authentic and real, who show up in their own face and not a game face, who find and use their voice in appropriate ways, and who act with a deep sense of integrity. And those who engage in the process of leadership - and at some point and time that includes each of us - want to be our self. Our true self. Our real self. Our whole self.

But being real and staying true to our self is not as easy as it might seem. We are always moving in and out of being authentic. We are fully and wholly present one moment but absent the next. We speak our truth in some experiences, then say yes when we want to say no in others. We act on our core values some of the time, but give them a wink and a nod when the heat is on. We think we project only light, never shadow, on others and the organizations we serve.

There are no tips and techniques, or simple formulas, or competencies we can develop, or clear road maps that can help us on the journey to becoming whole and authentic men and women. More than anything else, becoming and being our self requires confidence and courage. But there are things that we can do along the way - embracing our gifts and limits, integrating our shadow, making a decision in the moment to speak truth to power, making sure we have trustworthy traveling companions - that aid us as we seek to become the person we started out to be.
