Authentic Leadership: Being true to ourselves as Queer Leaders calls us to draw on the very essence of our values, beliefs principles, unique expression of our identities, and lived experiences. It's not just about 'coming out' at work, but more recognising that as LGBTQ+ leaders we have most likely adopted the styles or traits of our heteronormative counterparts in order to 'fit in'. Authentic leadership fundamentally begins with the will and commitment to unlearn what we think we know and work on ourselves; understanding who we are, what we really stand for and taking responsibility for the impact our behaviours have on others.
What is 'Queer Leadership'?
Queer Leadership isn't just about representation, visibility or hierarchy (what's on the outside). It's about looking inside and practicing leadership at every level in a way that enables all of us to thrive - both personally and professionally.
Queer Leadership is celebrating our unique strengths, prioritising authenticity, embracing our queerness, listening to our bodies, applying compassion, influencing with integrity, transforming our state of awareness and challenging 'the norm’.
When we practice Queer Leadership, we open ourselves up to new exciting possibilities as leaders - within our organisations, but also as members of the LGBTQ+ community.
