In a year of campaigns and promises, it's often the trustworthiness of a candidate that makes the final decision in voters' minds. For example, a candidate who’s exposed by the press as having appropriated public funding for his or her own private use instantly loses traction. At the same time, when old photographs surface that support another candidate’s previously disputed claim of having been active in the civil rights movement, that candidate suddenly gains significantly in the polls.
Just like we want our nation’s leaders to be trustworthy, your employees want you, their manager, to be someone they can rely on. Your people need to know you have their best interests at heart and they can rely on you to provide them with the tools they need to do their jobs. Without this trust, your team will feel less engaged with the company—after all, people work for people, not for companies—and are less likely to go the extra mile in their jobs. Obviously, this will have a negative impact on your team’s productivity, as well as the quality of their work.
So how can you improve your trustworthiness? Keep the following tips in mind.
The easiest way to improve your trustworthiness is to treat others the way you’d like to be treated. By doing so and at the same time keeping the tips above in mind, you can quickly become a manager your people trust and respect.
