Those you lead want to trust you. That’s an inherent truth in the leader-follower relationship.
The people you lead will give generous amounts of grace for your flaws and weaknesses as long as you don’t break trust.
You can make mistakes, execute an occasionally flawed decision, even fail in a big project as long as you maintain trust in your relationships.
If you chip away at, or eventually break trust as a leader, the foundation of your influence starts to crumble. And grace for shortcomings begins to dry up.
