Trust is the heart and soul of leadership. I’ve been told more than once that to understand leadership, you need to understand decision making and strategy, and that’s true—but these skills are wasted if you don’t first understand trust.
In my first tip this week, I’ll show you how trust moves a team from mere compliance to real commitment. When people trust you, they
• feel comfortable taking risks on your behalf, and being vulnerable to you;
• believe in the quality of your ideas; and
• will spend time helping others get on board with your decisions.
