Archit Gala Dr. San Jasso Bus 156 12 th Feb 2016 Assignment 4 Leadership cannot be defined, a leader has to be authentic. There are no rules or process to be a successful leader. A person has to be himself and think in his own way to be an authentic leader. No one will follow you if you try to follow some past leader’s tactics because the business environment keeps changing so new strategies are needed to cope with the change and only authentic leaders can do that. One can only be a authentic leader through struggle. In the article the author talks about interviewing 125 leaders to define a authenticate leader but the study concluded that every leader had his own set of traits and skills. Most of the leaders emerged from their real life story, which forced them to be a leader. These authenticate leaders tested themselves continuously in the real world and understood who are they from inside. The author gives us a great example of Kroger’s CEO, David Dillion. Most of the leaders have emerged from their stunning life events like death of a friend or personal illness. After such shocking incidents, the leaders reframed their work and understood themselves more in depth. According to the article Daniel Vasella had one of the hardest childhood struggles. He was admitted in the hospital at the age of 4 and since then till the age of 20 Vasella had to fight various struggles like death of his sister and father, his mom working in a town far away. After having so many unpleasant incidents in his childhood, Vasella reframed his life. After studying medicine and working in the field for several years, Vasella was announced as the CEO of Novartics. So in order to become an authentic leader it is very important to know yourself thoroughly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
