Four steps to principled leadership
Building trust is a keystone for leadership. Showing vulnerability is consciously choosing NOT to hide your emotions or passions from others. This begins with personal awareness of our purpose as a leader.
Being more vulnerable is simple, but it isn't always easy.
As leaders creating the right environment for good decision making at the right level and by the right people is essential.
It demonstrates that you have trust in your employees and shows honesty, compassion, respect and fairness.
The difference between responsibility and accountability is that responsibility can be shared while accountability can’t be.
Being accountable for something is ultimately having the courage and commitment to be dependable and reliable.
Behaviour is the single biggest influencer for principled leadership, saying one thing and doing another will destroy not only trust but confidence.
Predictable and consistent actions and words are the measure that holds us together through challenging situations.
