More Ways To Build Trust to Lead
Trust does not get built in a vacuum.
As a leader in a business family, there are intentional steps that you can work on to help build trust in your family and your business.
Put others first. To be trusted, you need to focus first on the needs of others. Strive for the best in others, develop their strengths, and support them in reaching their goals.
Own your part. Decide now that you will take the necessary steps to become a trusted leader in your family business. Don’t rationalize or blame others: your behavior will show how much you are to be trusted.
Demonstrate integrity. Be honest. Put others ahead of yourself. Don’t cut corners or act unethically.
“Good teams become great ones when the members trust each other enough to surrender the ‘me’ for the ‘we.’”Phil Jackson
