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.

http://blogs.hbr.org/2014/03/the-four-keys-to-being-a-trusted-leader/

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.

Worth reading! Your company will be the beneficiary!
