6 Traits of Authentic Leaders

Home Past Events - ISSA Events 6 Traits of Authentic Leaders


Apr 13 2022


1:00 pm - 3:00 pm




The best leaders are those who are willing to look at themselves in the mirror and identify what they do well and what they can do better—no matter where they are in life and leadership. They commit to a never-ending journey of learning, growing, and becoming the best version of themselves so that they can have the biggest impact on the people around them. In this session presented by ISSA’s Hygieia Network, Kristen will talk about the six components of being the best human and leader you can be.

Key Takeaways:

  • Mindset: Learn how to reframe self-limiting thoughts, establish a growth mindset, and understand the life experiences that have shaped you as a leader
  • Relationships: Learn how to build meaningful connection and make those you lead feel seen and heard
  • Communication: Learn how to develop, maintain, and strengthen trust through authentic conversations
  • Resilience: Learn how to give up control in favor of trusting and empowering those around you and find opportunities for growth in every challenge
  • Compassion: Learn how to set boundaries, prioritize self-care, and create an environment where everyone—including you—feels comfortable asking for help when they are overwhelmed
  • Impact: Learn how to find more purpose and meaning in your work and life and how to help others do the same

This webinar is sponsored by HD Supply and Sunbelt Rentals.

    Kristen Hadeed believes that authentic, human leadership can change the world.
    At 19, with hardly any leadership experience, Kristen started a cleaning business called Student Maid.

    She never expected it to be her career; it was simply a way to earn money while she was in college. But before she graduated, her company received a contract to clean hundreds of apartments—and it changed her path forever. Kristen hired a team of 60 people help her, and within days, 75% of that team quit. That’s when Kristen’s obsession with learning how to be a leader began.

    Over the next 14 years, Kristen learned a lot by screwing up. But most importantly, she learned how to lead from her heart. Doing so helped her take Student Maid from a small cleaning company to a business known on a global scale for its culture of belonging, its focus on people, and its purpose of building leaders.

    Today, Kristen spends her time helping leaders, teams, and organizations around the world embrace their humanity. She’s worked with just about every industry with one purpose behind it all: To build a better world through courageous, compassionate leadership.

    Kristen’s work has been featured in news outlets including PBS, FOX, Inc., NBC, TIME, and Forbes. Kristen’s book, Permission To Screw Up, has sold more than 37,000 copies worldwide. Her first TED Talk has more than three million views on YouTube.
