Part C In my opinion I think an authentic leader is one who truly leads by example even with flaws and shortcomings because nobody is perfect. I think an authentic leader is honest and open to criticism and feedback. An authentic leader believes in what they are encouraging others to believe and those followers see the leader living in a way that others will want to follow. An authentic leader builds a strong reputation that attracts high-performing people.

    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.
