Leadership Quality demonstrated by leaders varies from time to time, but one thing which is common on all the time and situation is Trust. It is the responsibility of leaders to demonstrate an important quality where in all related stake holders will trust his/ her action which will bring in the desired results. Some of the other qualities which should be in my opinion are Dharma, empathy, Transparency
and his ability to get things done.
If productive influence doesn’t arise from being liked (“I’m your friend!”) or from fear (“I’m the boss!”), where does it come from? From people’s trust in you as a manager. That trust has two components: belief in your competence (you know what to do and how to do
it) and belief in your character (your motives are good and you want your people to do well).
Trust is the foundation of all forms of influence other than coercion, and you need to conduct yourself with others in ways that foster it.
Management really does begin with who you are as a person.
Leadership is not what we posses as quality it is what others perceive you to be and accept your quality to be as leader. The designation / roles in the organization do not qualify us as leader.
Bridge the Gap after identifying the deficit in Trust. Your Quality of Leadership will be well received.
