Credibility: The Foundation of Your Leadership Style
Lead Star, May 22, 2017
Credibility is a critical quality because it allows people to place their trust in you. And one of the most challenging aspects of credibility is that you really can’t force people to trust you – you have to earn their trust in ways that are meaningful to them (not you).
Fortunately, there is a recipe for credibility. It’s the combination of your character and your performance level. You can’t have one without the other. You can’t be a person of sound integrity but a low performer and expect to have influence with others. Likewise, if you’re getting results but achieving them in inconsistent and underhanded ways, you’re never going to build trust.
By practicing the 4 ways to be credible as listed above, you’ll keep performing at a high level so that others will recognize you as a Spark who leads in thought, word and deed.
