Finding Your Personal and Organizational Voice: A Holistic Approach to Developing Authentic Leaders and Organizations

The Provost invites you to a Full Professor Inaugural Lecture celebrating Mark Lee, Ph.D., Professor of Strategic Management, School of Business, TWU

Finding one’s voice as a leader could be viewed as the final expression of Authentic Leadership, where the individual’s lifelong journey of self-discovery puts their beliefs and experiences into practice. However, one cannot be a leader without followers, so there is an inherent need for an Authentic Leader to also develop an authentic voice throughout the entire organization. With this as a beginning point, this paper offers a means of facilitating the development of an individual’s voice as a leader, and the voice of the organization using the Stinson Wellness Model and the Stinson Organizational Model.
