As a leader, what is the key ingredient needed for people to want to follow me?
So here are 4 suggested ways to start building your trust:
1. Behave predictably and consistently:
When you have a task to accomplish. Finish it. Or at least start, and struggle your way through it.
2. Communicate clearly:
If you make statements about your intentions (no matter how tentative they are in your mind) people hear them as promises...(yikes!!) *Remember, when there is a communication vacuum, people tend to fill in the spaces with their own thoughts (and that can be bad for you).
3. Treat promises seriously:
The more serious you are with your promises -the more serious people will treat them.
4. Be forthright and candid:
If you can or you can't ---just say it already!
