I just returned from an amazing ski trip in France. My father-in-law has wanted to ski the Alps for the better part of four decades, and this year we made it happen. It was great to enjoy time with family and to meet fellow skiers from around the world. But I was struck by an encounter with a group who had “won” the eight day ski trip for free by signing up investment clients. This wasn’t their first such trip, either, as they had been highly successful in “bringing in assets.”
It’s easy to impress people from a distance. It’s much harder to create trust. To do that, we must be brave enough to reveal the wholeness of our being, including our strengths and our weaknesses. Perhaps the most essential quality of leadership is credibility; otherwise, people won’t believe us. How do we build credibility? Not by hiding our imperfections or, much worse, by creating an image of perfection. We create credibility by being honest and embracing the fullness of our own humanity. Only then do we deserve to be trusted.
