Myth 7

Myth
I have to know everything.

Reality
If you have to know everything, you are telling people they have not earned your trust.

It is natural to desire respect and trust. Every leader needs to know that he/she is respected and trusted. To be respected and trusted, you must respect the individual and trust her/him to apply her/his unique strengths.

Earning respect and trust is a commitment and takes time. You must spend time skillfully learning about the individuals diverse knowledge, skills, and abilities. You do this to know how to best lead them in applying their authenticity – just like you are modeling for them.

You have now learned how to ‘delegate for development’ … and this is how you support your focus – resulting in mutual respect and trust.

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.
