Authentic Leader Workshop

 An all-new programming experience offered through Leadership Toledo!

After taking two groups of employees from Automatic Handling International through an Authentic Leader workshop, facilitated by Leadership Toledo, CEO, Dan Pienta shares a few reflections.

The Authentic Leader Workshop is an opportunity to measure and enhance your leadership effectiveness, grow in stronger self-awareness and understanding of your internal operating system, and gain clarity on your personal purpose and how that is impacting your current life. 

This tried and true program was created by Bob Anderson, Jr. who speaks to our adult class each year.  His commitment to leadership development, which contains depth, integrity, and compassion, is an inspiration to our organization and is overwhelmingly present in the Authentic Leader experience. 


The Leadership Circle ProfileTM (LCP) is a true breakthrough among 360 degree profiles. It is the first to
connect a well-researched battery of competencies with the underlying and motivating habits of thought. It reveals the relationship between patterns of action and internal
assumptions that drive behavior. Ultimately, LCP goes to the source of behavior to get greater leverage on change. Furthermore, unlike most profiles that take hours to interpret, LCP integrates all this information in a way that brings the key issues to the surface instantly.

The data in LCP reveals itself in seconds. At a glance, the whole gestalt is accessible - putting leaders in touch with what is working, what is not, and why! In most organizations, this treasure trove of information remains buried. LCP makes it easily accessible while it creates a foundation on which ground breaking change can occur at a higher level and sustainable pace. 

Authentic Leader is a three day, highly interactive foundational workshop designed for leaders who are seeking to deepen their leadership mastery.

The workshop is intended to be taken after a leader completes the Leadership Circle Profile. The workshop deepens the experience of The Leadership Circle ProfileTM, further mining the 360 data to uncover patterns that are limiting business results and blocking a fuller expression of the Creative Leadership Competencies. It is designed to help leaders learn how to lead more authentically from a place of deeper competence, transparency, and trust. In doing so, it necessitates that leaders identify and acknowledge how their current “operating system” is specifically limiting their effectiveness. Leaders will learn that a change in their actions, behaviors, and beliefs in one or two key areas can bring about fundamental shifts in their overall leadership effectiveness.

The Authentic Leader workshop is designed to help leaders accurately understand their current state of leadership and chart their own unique developmental journey. Authenticity is highly correlated with leadership effectiveness and given that effective leaders always outperform ineffective leaders, helping leaders improve their capacity to lead authentically has a big organizational payoff. This workshop can be leveraged for individual leaders, intact teams, or mixed cohorts and often serves as a foundational cornerstone in an organization’s leadership system.
