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.
Now, I believe most people strive to be honorable and trustworthy in their leadership roles. 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.

A few months ago Amtrak faced the worst train accident to ever hit the northeast corridor.

 

Though still under NTSB investigation – it is likely that no one single issue caused the crash. It was a sequence of events that lead to the Amtrak disaster, and not all of them occurred onboard the train the day of the accident. Many of the events leading to the accident stemmed from problems within the Amtrak organization itself.

How to Get Over Your Controlling Ways

How to Get Over Your Controlling Ways | New Leadership | Scoop.it

There is a famous quote attributed to the legendary race car driver Mario Andretti:


If everything appears to be under control, then you’re just not going fast enough.


Control is a wonderful thing, but it is fundamentally incompatible with outstanding speed. When you control things you can maintain quality or manage your costs more effectively, but you’ll have to give up speed in the process. Just remember that old adage that you may have heard from a consultant or service provider at some point in your career: good, fast, and cheap—pick two.


But does that really cut it in today’s world? We have the internet and digital technology now. We have more information at our fingertips than our grandparents even knew existed. Hasn’t the game changed?

Shifting the mindset of leaders and its transformational power

Shifting the mindset of leaders and its transformational power | New Leadership | Scoop.it

This article summarises the most significant evidence, including the author’s own research, coaching and consulting experience, and includes a description of a programme that has been highly effective in several workplaces. It argues that the potential of an empowering style of leadership is still not fully acknowledged, owing to an understatement
of the degree of interdependence between individual and organisational development. There is now strong evidence to support the conclusion that a leader’s mindset, conduct and personal presence are not merely influential, but potentially transformational.
