    Dear Colleagues,

    COB Organizational Wisdom Studio continues hosting the CSU Chancellor Joseph I. Castro, this time in a conversation about his journey as an authentic leader. With a dedication to follow their purpose, authentic leaders influence their organization with the high-quality relationships they build with others based on strong values, ethical principles, self-discipline, and compassion, rather than transactional relationships, formal power, and authority. Wisdom Studio co-hosts Professor Hakan Ozcelik and Ms. Elisabeth Nunziato interview Chancellor Castro to learn about:

    • how inspirational relationships he built with his family, mentors, and friends have cultivated his authentic leadership qualities
    • the importance of building authentic connections with younger generations in higher education
    • how listening to learn fuels authentic leadership qualities, and
    • how authentic relationships can prevent becoming "lonely at the top."

    You are welcome to share this episode with those who you think would benefit.
