Think of a person who had #confidence in you and extended trust. Reflect on its ongoing impact. Will you have the same impact on your team members?

#Trust is one of the most written-about and talked-about topics in the business world today. Ask yourself, Am I more inclined to trust or distrust others? Is your natural tendency to be suspicious of others, or are you able to extend trust even to those who have not yet fully “earned it”? As Abraham Lincoln famously said, “If you trust, you will be disappointed occasionally, but if you mistrust, you will be miserable all the time.”

Success is often the direct result of someone extending trust and allowing individuals to learn a critical #leadership trait. Great leaders extend trust, sometimes beyond even what is deserved.
