There’s a lot of traits that make up a good leader, but they all boil down to one major question – do your employees have trust in you? This doesn’t just mean not spending their time worrying that you’ll fire them, because there’s plenty of other ways a bad manager can have a negative impact on their workforce by losing their trust.
This is an important issue because you need your staff to be engaged and driven to meet the goals that you’re all working towards, and trust is a major factor in achieving success. 93% of workers say they need to trust their boss to feel satisfied at work, while another study found that businesses with high levels of trust were 2 ½ times more likely to have high revenues than those with low levels. Building this trust with your employees isn’t rocket science. Small acts like recognizing good work, delivering on promises and being more open and honest are good practices that will engage your employees and get them feeling like they can trust in you, which is good for you, for them and your whole business.
