Keys to Being a Trusted Leader
Four Keys to Being a Trusted Leader
Recently the Harvard Business Review blogs.hbr.org published an interesting article by George Pettigrew MBA, a Director at Johnson and Johnson Healthcare Company.
This enlightening article defines “real leadership – the kind that inspires people to pull together and collectively achieve something great – (which)can only be exercised when an executive is trusted.”
According to George, there are 4 pillars of strength a leader can show here –
1. Safety of the workplace – equating to job security, only imparted by the leaders,not EHS,
2. Service to the workforce – helping employees and therefore the business succeed,
3. Sacrifice – taking an unpopular stand, if necessary, for the well-being of the staff,
4. Selflessness – concerning oneself about others, gaining trust.
If you want great people working for you, give them the tools, respect and confidence they need to get the job done.
