Principles of Authentic Leadership

Everyone who involves themselves within OOTF endorses the 4 principles of authentic leadership. They also form the basis for the way we deal with each other in the councils and at our events. It’s not about ‘rules’ that you have to comply with, but they rather represent an honest intention that you try to fulfil every day.




I choose authenticity by showing myself as I am, by being transparent and stimulating open behaviour among others. My intention is to always be willing to learn and to continue to develop myself. I view new experiences, perspectives and dimensions without judgement.

I aim for responsibility by first and foremost showing understanding for myself and the world around me. From there, I do what it takes to make myself, my environment and society evolve sustainably.

keywords > understanding, serviceability


I aim for commitment by striving for a natural balance whenever I connect with myself and with others. I do this by not taking any more or any less space than I need at the material, physical, mental and emotional level.

keywords > consciously sharing space, give and take, balance


I aim for trust by showing myself fully and vulnerable, by generously sharing experiences and showing best practices. In the belief that this really contributes to the well-being of myself and the whole.
