Does Your Team Trust You to Lead?

As the leader, your employees look to you for guidance and direction, and most take their lead from you about how to respond to what’s happening in the workplace. You are always on stage, giving clues about how they should think, feel, and behave when it comes to your organization. They trust you to lead the way.trust

One important key to trust is your skill at demonstrating your expertise in both the technical aspects of the job and as a leader. Consistently share your expertise with them and help them be more effective and successful. Show your willingness to groom them for greater responsibility and promotions.

Strengthen trust by avoiding gossip, being careful in how and when you communicate, and showing high emotional intelligence at all times. This is especially important in times of change when employees feel uncertain. They will look to you to see how you are responding. If you show doubt or uncertainty about the change, they will reflect this. Your ability to communicate confidence and be trustworthy can help mitigate their concerns.
