Leadership Skills # 3: Establishing Trust

Often times you would encounter that your safe environment changes as there are changes to the teams you work with. It is important for us to keep the following points in mind approaching such changes to give a good chance for new equations to have trust and respect:-

  • Never label people. It is good in a positive sense but not in a negative tone
  • Respect the seat if not the person
  • Do not bring emotions into your communication style
  • Remain open-minded and give the relationship a chance to prove itself over a period of time
  • Construct bullets points if doing write-first, and then bring that together into a story
  • Move from self to larger purpose when focussing on such conversations
