Mette's KeyNote

Unmask the Leader Within

– Lead with Authenticity 


"Authenticity" is on every executive coach’s lips. But what is authenticity? Being real, being genuine, being you?  
In her talk, Mette takes the audience on a journey to provide clarity to what it means to be authentic. She explores the challenges of how to be ourselves and discusses whether we have to show up as our entire selves at all times. To be authentic, we must start by knowing ourselves. Mette argues that it’s about knowing our strengths and weaknessesknowing what energizes us and what drains us; and, the awareness about the core of being ourselves: knowing our values and passion. 
The power of knowing ourselves and being authentic is real. 
When we consistently show up as ourselves, we strengthen the foundation on which all human and business relations are built: trust. When we know our values, we will ignite our passion. This passion allows us to accomplish extraordinary things. When we are true to our values and accomplish extraordinary things, we inspire others with similar value systems. We become true leaders: those, who are followed not because of wealth, title, or position; but because we’re inspired to follow them.  
Let Mette inspire you to unmask your authentic you!
