We have been arguing for an extended period of time now that value-driven leadership is essential for organisational success.
Benevolence is about a whole lot more than just being nice. People can only be dismissive of being here to give if they do not understand the complex nexus of character traits and feelings associated with it.
Unfortunately, the benefits of trust are often overlooked. We tend to not fully realize how trust can help you be more successful.
Trust is an important quality. People who are very distrusting tend to be controlling, insecure, overly suspicious of others, prone to anxiety, unable to take risks, etc.
In a work situation if the person/manager is behaving in a way that does not meet with the criteria of the recipient, can it be called “distrust?”
