What's the foundation of Leadership?

por Felipe Dib

Hello, my friend! How are you? If you're out of time or "in a rush", go to the last paragraph of this text for a fast answer.

In times of immediate responses and connection 24 hours a day, talking about long-term transformation is a risk! But… at Você Aprende Agora we believe you can (and must!) dream big, and make a daily effort to get better every day. This is our mission - seeing you speaking English and being a Leader wherever you go. "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership" was written by John Maxwell in 1998, and its goal is to improve your skills as a Leader.

Last classes we talked about the first 5 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership:

1- Law of the Lid;

2- Law of Influence;

3- Law of Process;

4- Law of Navigation;

5- Law of Addition.

Today we study the Law of Solid Ground that explains the importance of trust. If people trust you, you can be a leader. John Maxwell starts saying trust is the solid ground for anyone who wants to influence people effectively. The question is, how do we build trust?

Through competence, connection and character we build trust. "You don't build trust by talking about it. You build it by achieving results, always with integrity and in a manner that shows real personal regard for the people with whom you work", says John.

Trust. This is the basis. Make a commitment to yourself to be scrupulously honest, my friend. As Maxwell says, "don't shave the truth, don't tell white lies, and don't fudge numbers". Do the right things every day regardless of how you feel. Who's someone you really trust? Why do  you trust this person? Comment here and see you next class!
