Myth 4

Myth
My position gives me credibility.

Reality
Credibility is an outcome of how you communicate who you are and what you stand for.

While a position in and of itself may provide a certain level of respect, you must earn the deep respect that is measured by credibility.

Credibility is measured by the depth of trust. To have a depth of trust, you must build a safe environment through personal honesty and openness.

Credibility is an outcome. Your confidence, combined with skillful, clear communication, builds credibility. Your confidence is found in the core of who you are. You build and maintain credibility by consistently operating from that core.

Be conscious of your core values as you set goals and create strategies to achieve those goals.

About Jeff Brunson

In this whirling 21st Century the individual needs to embrace the authentic self and confidently leverage the energy and power found there. As we entered the 21st Century, I became more concerned about what leaders like you needed for successful influence and personal fulfillment. As we move deeper into this challenging 21st Century, I’m more convinced than ever that the core of my work is in helping individual leaders remember who they are − a trueness. It is about confidence found in your authenticity.
