Leadership and Trust

“Trust is in part based on the extent to which a leader is able to create positive relationships with other people people and groups”, yet in my coaching work with leaders very often i notice that the focus on establishing those positive relationships is missing, and the assumption that being technically outstanding or a good visionary are enough often seems to take over. It is important to remember that all human beings have a profound need to connect and foster positive relationships to feel recognized and listened to... dismissing this need is one of the key mistakes that leaders can do and it severely hinders the #trust that others put on you as a leader!
