When interacting with other peers, employees, or volunteers, be sure to show genuine care and support. This genuine care and support produces an atmosphere where you are seen as a trusted leader. Respect everyone, even those who do not work or report to you directly. Supporting others makes the workday productive and promotes a healthy culture.
Trust is the core imperative of great leaders. What does that look like? Mediocre leaders say: “I’m the boss … I get things done”. Great leaders say: “I get thing done through influence, credibility, and the support of others.”
