5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake

5 Tips to Avoid a Critical Leadership Mistake | New Leadership | Scoop.it

I knew Gary wasn’t happy.

Early in my career, when I first began leading team-leaders, one of them was clearly struggling – he looked frustrated, sounded frustrated, and it didn’t take a genius to know something was bothering Gary.

So I asked if I could buy him lunch and hear what was on his mind.

As we ate, he began sharing complaint after complaint…he’d been disrespected and abused by a senior manager, his team wasn’t doing as well as he hoped, he wasn’t sure the company’s vision matched his own…and so on.

Gary had appreciated my invitation to lunch and the opportunity to be heard.

The Top 10 Ways Leaders Erode Trust

The Top 10 Ways Leaders Erode Trust | New Leadership | Scoop.it
Irresponsible, unreliable, and undependable make for great words in a song, but if those adjectives describe your leadership style then chances are your people don’t trust you.

There aren’t too many people who wake up in the morning and on their way into the office exclaim to themselves, “I think today is a fabulous day to break someone’s trust!” Most leaders unintentionally erode trust through what I call “trust busting” behaviors. Despite our best intentions, we sometimes get in our own way and bust trust without even realizing it.
