Authentic – from the Latin word ‘authenticus’ (genuine, original) and Greek authentikos (lord, master). Genuine lord (authentic leader). What’s an authentic leader? Being interested in others. Not being influenced by pride, material things or vanity. Knowing your purpose, being vulnerable, and taking-action.
Connection – from the Latin word ‘coniunctionem’ (linkage, relationship). Togetherness. Tied or bound together by beliefs, experiences, interests, attributes or purpose. Now, you know ‘why’ connecting, reconnecting and understanding how others like to connect matters.
Committed Community – from the Latin word ‘committere’ (entrust, unite) and civitas (public spirit). A committed community comes from created trust among a group of people that is continually earned. Without trust, there is no leadership. Authentic leaders earn trust by the authority of ‘who’ they are backed-up by their work.
