Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes

Why Trust is the New Core of Leadership - Forbes | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it
Not long ago, most discussions of leadership were about leaders – their personality traits, how to identify and groom those with ‘leadership potential,’ and what were the skills that leaders employed.

I dont believe it's the new core, it's been there all along, perhaps we are only just taking notice. Do you agree?

Simple superb article. Turak clearly articulates no matter what position you are in the professional world, you have somebody higher-up to report to - it clarifies that one cannot be a good leader without being a good follower. Turak's core values: trust, compassion & loyalty provide a framework for being "successful" and a framework for being a good follower.

Good leaders focus on using trust-building behaviors and avoid using behaviors that erode trust with others

Annette Schmeling's curator insight, June 10, 2013 11:34 PM

Great complement to Ken Blanchard's Trust Works! @RandyConley highlights need for trustorthy behaviors. Trust is a vague concept, and yet the lack of it is very real. Respect, Openness, Honest and Reliability are core principles of trust and worthy of our attention.

7 Reasons Employees Don't Trust Their Leaders

As the world mourns the loss of Nelson Mandela and commemorates his greatness as a leader, we would do well to remember that one of the  many hallmarks of his leadership was trust.  The greatest leaders in the world gravitated toward Mr. Mandela because he was genuinely trustworthy and his purpose was to support peace, prosperity and unity not only in South Africa – but throughout the world. Mandela was able to lead people in ways that many find impossible to do. As he famously said, “It always seems impossible until it’s done.”


Unfortunately, trust is in rare supply these days.  People are having trouble trusting each other, according to an AP-GfK poll conducted in November 2013, which found that Americans are suspicious of each other in their everyday encounters.

How to Build Leadership Trust

How to Build Leadership Trust | "employee engagement enhancement" | Scoop.it

What do employees really want from company leaders? The answer may surprise you — and, more important, may prompt you to change some of your practices.

“I don’t think the people who work for you want you to be an optimist anymore,” says GE CEO Jeff Immelt. “They want you to be realistic. They don’t want hollow promises, they want action: What’s your plan, and how are you going to solve problems?”

The hallmarks of what Immelt calls “positive leadership” are authenticity, transparent communication, a focus on the future, and the ability to solve problems and take action.

Great leadership is built around trust. How truthful CEO communication can build better team alignment and productivity at your company.

Recent management studies support the idea that workers respond best not to cheerleading or a continuous stream of happy talk, but to evidence of a strong connection between words and deeds. Employees are much more likely to trust their immediate supervisors than top corporate executives, according to global consulting firm Blessing White. Why? Because employees can match what managers say with what they do. That’s more difficult to do given the layers of management that may separate them from top leaders, which makes it imperative that top leaders spell out specific actions the company will take, explain why, and offer proof that such actions have been taken.
