Building Trust in Leadership

Posted by Orrin Woodward on February 24, 2014

People will never follow you further than they trust you. Hence the reason why trust is such an essential aspect of leadership. Regardless of how hard one works, if one is also not building trust, then one is not building a leadership culture. LIFE Leadership is a leadership community that builds longterm relationships based upon service and trust. With over 20 years experience in compensated communities, Chris Brady and I launched LIFE Leadership in November of 2011 to revolutionize this profession and help compensated communities go mainstream like franchising did. To do so, building leaders who serve and build trust is a non-negotiable.

    Character, integrity, and most importantly honour is a non-negotiable. These traits have become slippery slopes in the education system. I am a high school teacher and I have seen that are negotiable and it slowly wears down the entire community. If it does’t start with our education. It needs to start with us. The man in the mirror and teach our youth what is wrong and what is right without compromise. I am glad you are reminding us how important it is to establish trust in every one of our relationships.
