The Art of Authenticity in Leadership: Andrew Ramsden’s Coaching for Successful Leaders

Authentic leadership is the key to success, according to Andrew Ramsden, a leadership specialist and executive coach. Many Australian businesses and Public Sector Agencies have benefited from his company, Peak State Global, which encourages its clients to discover and embrace their unique brand of authentic confidence.

According to Andrew’s analysis, to get the most out of yourself and those around you as we enter the Age of AI requires leaders to go against the grain. It’s no longer enough to follow the bouncing ball and learn to play the existing games of power and politics. There is nothing more subversive than turning the game upside down through your genuine commitment to your vision and the triple-bottom-line. 

Andrew believes the most significant flaw shown by the leaders of today is an over reliance on reason and force of willpower to ‘think’ and ‘do’ their way out of challenging situations. Many of his clients come to him exhausted as a result. Instead, he emphasizes the necessity of true leadership skills such as being present and connecting with your own purpose and the passions of others. He encourages leaders to forgo masks and defenses and instead embrace their humanity in order to connect with their teams and followers on a deeper level and drive them to commit to their vision. In doing so, they will be better able to motivate their followers to commit to the goal.

However, authenticity by itself is not sufficient. Andrew talks about how one should learn to connect with their head, heart and gut. The best leaders can use all three to inform decisions and rely on them to achieve flow states throughout the day. These are the leaders who can perform under pressure without turning it into stress for themselves or those around them.

Andrew contends that for those leaders who want to be the best they can be, they must undergo their own hero’s journey. This path is not for everyday leaders happy to skate by; only those destined for greatness should embark upon it as it’s a confronting journey. Through his proven process, Andrew helps his clients realize their brilliance and reach their maximum potential in all aspects of their lives, from their careers to their personal relationships.

Andrew’s knowledge of digital technology and widespread societal shifts spans two decades. He has guided large-scale digital and cultural transformations in the Australian Public Sector and helped thousands of executives expand their comfort zones and influence. In addition to his role as a coach, he has written several books on peak leadership performance and sustainable success. He also conducts interviews with inspirational leaders from around the globe on his Peak State Podcast.

He draws on his experience as a Matrix Therapies Coach, a Body Psychotherapist, and a Certified NLP Practitioner, in addition to his own experience of transformational and contemporary leadership to develop his own proven methods. Andrew’s method of coaching is not for the typical business leader; rather, it is designed for those who want to be the best. If you want to be better than 99% of others you must have the courage to do what 99% of people don’t.

When leaders are ready to expand their comfort zone, impact, and prosperity in their jobs, businesses, and personal lives, they seek out Andrew. Andrew’s customers have reported feeling confident, empowerment, and fulfilled with their life and in business. They then become the kind of influential leaders who disrupt their organization and industry before they become disrupted by others. They then inspire those around them to see the world through the same lens as they do: To leave the world better than they found it.
