Building trust is one of the most important aspects of leadership. As a leader, you will need to have an executable plan to develop trust. As you continue on your leadership path, the plan will become more ingrained and even take some adjustment, but you must begin somewhere.
Read the following article:
Firstly, Reagan, B. (2004). How to score high on the trust equation. National Underwriter/P&C, 108(19), 10–11.
Using this article as a foundation, develop a plan on how you will develop trust within your staff.
Be sure to include specific examples of the activities and rationale behind your plan. For example:
Secondly, Communication (how you will communicate)
Thirdly, Modeling (what types of activities will you use to model)
Moreover, Commitment (how your staff will know that you are committed)
Lastly, Accountability (what the accountability measures are and who or what will hold you accountable)
Leadership development needs to address behavior aligned to the evolution of potential and problem solving ability. In “Six Levels of Leadership”, this is expressed at different organisational management levels:
Additionally, Team leaders look to optimally respond to individual demands. They focus on service delivery and satisfaction. Their problem solving capability allows them to keep the overview, manage the process and strive for results by reaching higher service levels for individuals.
Further, Managers will focus on incremental improvement, reduce costs and increase efficiency (prior to service delivery). Their problem solving capability allows them to manage the system and align processes to maximize profit or resources in a given context.
Finally, At the strategic development level, leaders seek to differentiate. They focus on how contexts evolve and anticipate trends. Their problem solving capability allows them to tap new sources of growth by looking for new methods or systems that respond to upcoming changes.
When planning for leadership development, and acknowledging that managerial leadership happens at different levels of complexity in organizations, it’s important to align the context that has to be managed with the ‘problem solving capability’ required to deliver in that context.
