2 Highlights From This Episode
1. Building Trust
I wanted to be the type of leader that people want to follow because they trust me. Trust is a foundation that you must have, no matter where you go. Leaders must make themselves and their stories available to those they lead. Transparency is vital to building trust. Great leaders learn about each person they lead and what makes them tick.Be the type of leader that people want to follow because they trust you. @KBrookeWalls @LifeLinkInt Click To Tweet Great leaders learn about each person they lead and what makes them tick. @KBrookeWalls @LifeLinkInt Click To Tweet
2. Empowering Others
When you’re in high risk situations leaders must trust and empower those around them. Your teams must know that they can make a decisions, share their concerns and have them validated. Great leaders instill confidence, help others to believe in themselves and prepare them to make the right decisions. But you’ll never do any of those if you’re afraid to fail. Serving under a leader who empowers you has a way of removing the fear of making a mistake.Serving under a leader who empowers you has a way of removing the fear of making a mistake. @KBrookeWalls @LifeLinkInt Click To Tweet
