Power Play: Be worthy of trust

Power Players don’t use big words unless they understand their meaning. Trust is one of those big words.

Power Players know that trust is hard to build and must be earned. And they also know that if trust is broken, it is almost impossible to rebuild.

Power Players don’t expect to be trusted by their team simply because they happen to be in a position of power. If anything, they know this generally makes people more suspicious and less likely to trust.

The truly awesome Power Players earn their trust step by little step. They demonstrate their decency and their character and show that their word is their bond. There is no other way to earn real trust. Your job as a Power Players is to be worthy of it.
