TRUST is the currency of leadership.
If those with whom we work TRUST us, then there's a decent chance they'll follow our lead. If they don't trust us.....................not a prayer.
What are some things we can do to diminish, or interdict, the trust others might be willing to place in us?
- Holding things and information from the team, playing secrecy games.
- Engaging in words and actions that make others feel devalued.
- Isolating by avoiding personal encounters with folks up and down the organizational chain.
- Using MSU (Making Shit Up) communications, either making things appear better than they are or worse than they are (aka disinformation).
We need bank all the TRUST capital we can get.
