How important is TRUST for a leader? It is the Solid Ground on which Leadership is built. Without the TRUST of your followers, they will not follow you. And if no one is following you, you are just out for a walk.
People do not always have to agree with you but they must trust that what you are telling them, you really do believe and that you live what you teach. Is it a reality in your own personal life, if not TRUST is broken and you have no followers. And if you have no followers you have no influence and if you have no influence with people you will never accomplish your dreams and goals.
Above all make sure you live your life so that those who God sends into your life to influence can TRUST you.
