Leadership authenticity isn't just about authentic leaders. It's about embracing authenticity in your employees.
In a study conducted by Plasticity Labs and Wilfred Laurier University: 72% of participants claimed they exhibit workplace authenticity after an average of two to three months. Within this number, 60% claimed they only became authentic once they reached three months at an office. 22% said they became authentic by nine months. 9% said it occurred between 10-12 months. Another 9% said it took more than a year to act like their genuine selves at work.
