Authenticity in Leadership:
Cultivating the Real You Builds Trust and Inspires Loyalty
by PDA Marketing Consultant Sara Hansen
Dental Entrepreneur Women (DeW) Life magazine recently published the article “Authenticity in Leadership: Cultivating the Real You Builds Trust and Inspires Loyalty” by PDA Marketing Consultant Sara Hansen in its Summer 2023 edition. Sara writes: What are you a champion of? This is one of those questions that helps people understand what their passions and values are. It inspires self-reflection so you can articulate what motivates you. It’s a question I ask the dentists I work with to find out who they are and what they want out of life. As a champion of helping people find their true voice and tell their own stories, I’m deeply passionate about guiding others toward their bravest and most authentic selves. However this realization wasn’t something that came easily to me. In fact, I had to navigate my own journey first – discovering the path toward my true self and finding my own voice. Only then could I become a guide to others who were seeking the same transformation. It’s a lesson I learned firsthand: in order to teach someone how to find their bravest self, you must first find your own.

In this article, Dr. Dassani writes: Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder that can affect people of all ages, including children. Researchers estimate that obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) affects between 1% to 5% of children in the US.1 Pediatric sleep apnea is a challenging condition, but early diagnosis and appropriate treatment can help children lead healthier, more restful lives.
