The perception of inauthenticity is a critical issue that needs to be understood and addressed. If it is not, our actions, programs, and resources will become (more of) a source of jokes, derision, and viewed as a waste of resources.
In this presentation, Dr. White will explore the nature of genuineness and what factors lead to a perception of inauthenticity. Is authenticity reality- or perception-based? What practices do we need to examine (and possibly, revise)? What are the results of being perceived as not being “real”? What can we do practically to address the issues?
