“Your reputation is in the hands of others. That’s what the reputation is. You can’t control that. The only thing you can control is your character.” ― Wayne Dyer
In order to be a trustworthy leader you must have a strong and positive reputation. When you have a strong reputation it’s easier to encourage others to take action, be a seen as a reliable leader, and trusted to do what you say you’ll do. This is why your reputation as a leader is very important. So let’s talk about how to develop your reputation as a leader.
In order to be seen as trustworthy there are some qualities you should strive to have.
- Transparency. When you are transparent with the people you lead, the people you lead will feel like they can trust you to tell them the whole story. No one likes being left in the dark. Sometimes it might feel like holding out on some truths will protect others… but really, people find peace when they know the whole truth, no matter how bad that truth may be.
- Resilience. Being resilient in times of adversity will really make those you lead want to trust you. Not only that but the people you lead will feel a sense of comfort around you. When you’re the leader, people expect you to fight for what you’re leading, that’s why you play such an important role.
- Humility. Being self centered and having a large ego are not qualities that make leaders great. What makes a leader great, is when they are able to put their pride aside for the talks or project at hand. With this quality those you lead will find it easy to trust you.
