Why is trust so important in leadership?
Decisions team leaders make directly affect the organizations they serve, therefore, one important element of team building is trust.
In 1986 and 1991, the American Management Association surveyed 1500 leaders nationwide, asking: What kind of leader would you follow, being a leader yourself? The #1 answer, both times, was: a leader with credibility—in other words, someone they trusted. Apostle Paul said: What you sow, you reap. Open and honest sharing—vulnerability—revealing your heart, creates open and honest responses from your team. Try it and see what happens.
