Our identity is often bound up what we do at work. The work we do goes some way to describing who we are, what we stand for and it reveals, in one dimension at least, a tangible and valued contribution that we make to the world. Authenticity in organizations matters more than ever. In today's complex and global economy it's more important than ever that we empower employees to bring their authentic selves to work. Doing so leads to increased innovation, productivity, more thoughtful risk-taking, a sense of responsibility and enhanced adaptiveness to change. Creating Authentic Organizations goes beyond the remit of authentic leadership and shows how the concept of authenticity can and should be applied to your organization. It offers a new management framework based on the freedom to operate, meaningful dialogue and a deep search for personal meaning at work; autonomy and the opportunity to make an impact is a key driver of productivity. With simple and powerful models and strategies to bring about workplace authenticity, this bold and cutting-edge approach will show you how to ensure more authentic dialogue and encourage open and meaningful discussion around threats and challenges. Creating Authentic Organizations gives you the tools to bridge the gap between the corporate persona and the authentic self, leading to greater employee engagement, well-being and organizational resilience. Online supporting resources include an authenticity and freedoms diagnostic tool and guidance notes.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Creating Authentic Organizations is a must-read for any HR professional. The authors emphasize bringing meaning and engagement into the workplace; in essence, making more resilient organizations for the future. More than ever we need to create and sustain resilience in our workplaces; this book provides some very useful ideas, diagnostics and approaches."--Cary Cooper "Pro-Vice-Chancellor for External Affairs, Lancaster University "
"It is refreshing to find a book that explains why the best way to run a business is to be yourself, respect your people and trust everyone with the freedom to do their job in their own way and in their own space. Creating Authentic Organizations shows that good management can't be achieved simply by following a process. Success is produced by leaders with character who create a company with personality which is at ease with itself because they pick a group of talented people who 'get it' and trust the organization to trust them to do their best. Managers who take note of the central messages in this book will enjoy a happier and more successful workplace."--John Timpson "Chairman, Timpson Ltd "
"19th and 20th century management processes and practices don't work in the knowledge economy of the 21st century. In Creating Authentic Organizations, Robin Ryde and Lisa Sofianos thoughtfully and thoroughly frame the rights and responsibilities required to make organizations and individuals successful for today and tomorrow."--Kai Peters "Chief Executive, Ashridge Business School "
