Does your Leader trust you?
Do your Team Members trust you?
How do you know for sure?
“You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you
will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.”
– James Allen
I remember what someone told me once about why people follow others. He said that there are only two reasons why people follow others:
First, was out of a sense of pure curiosity to see if someone so stupid could really pull this off.
Second, was out a sense of loyalty, or inspiration because they truly believed their Leader could actually lead them to success.
You can’t control other people, places, things or situations. But, you can influence the behavior of others by persuasion. Influence here refers to your ability to get things done through others who chose to trust and follow you because of your positive influence and character.
The Effective Leader’s Greatest Secret:
Service – Credibility – Influence via Persuasion =
Your credibility and influence is earned or lost everyday as a direct result of your application of the 10 Core Competencies of Effective Leadership. None of my Effective Leaders were strong in all 10 Core Competencies. However, they always selected a Direct Report that could support them where they were weak.
Effective Leaders know that they must have the the credibility needed influence the actions of other, through persuasion, to consistently product excellent results. To gain that credibility, you must truly serve those you lead.
What is Credibility?
Credibility is a perceived level of trust and confidence
granted everyday by those with whom you serve.
Credibility comes as a result of the skillful application of the 10 Core Competencies of Effective Leadership.
As a Leader, credibility is something you must earn. It’s the perceived goodwill, trust, and cooperation granted by those you lead in order to consistently produce excellent results. It’s earned or lost everyday by your willingness serve them.
Credibility can also be granted by virtue of age, experience, achievements, knowledge, or former titles. For example, Jack Welch, former CEO of General Electric and Colin Powell, former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, still have great credibility and influence as informal Leaders where ever they go.
I believe that if you hire self-managing people
and teach them correct principles, they can
and will govern themselves.
