Michelle Obama’s Embodiment of Authentic Leadership

When asked to think about inspiring leaders there are many names one can choose from. However, for me the first person who comes to mind is Michelle Obama. She is a leader I deeply admire based on her leadership qualities and accomplishments.

Her charisma, compassion, transparency, and ability to motivate others makes her one of the most unrivaled First Ladies in history. Before her rise to fame in the White House, she was a successful lawyer, author, and community activist.

Once she became First Lady, she addressed issues such as racism, women’s rights, public health. Michelle is a visionary and a risk taker who stepped outside of the traditional first lady stereotypes to fight for social issues.
