The Three Most Important Keys to Leadership:

Effective communication by leadership in three critical areas is the key to winning others trust and confidence and involves:

  1. Helping others understand the goal’s overall strategy.
  2. Helping others understand how they contribute to achieving key goals objectives.
  3. Sharing information with others on both how the team is doing and how an other’s own is doing – relative to strategic goals objectives.

So basically, you must be trustworthy, and you have to be able to communicate a vision of where you are going.
