In life as in business, people are everything. Though there is no direct correlation between the values that the organization holds and it’s success, there is a large correlation between an organization’s success and trust in its leadership team.
And trust is really two things that we can each hold ourselves accountable for every day.
First, there must be a feeling that someone has the right skill set to support the role that they are in. When competency doesn’t match the role, then it is time to shift the job description, yourself, or others into a role that does fit where they can be at their best. Trust in your team to set each other up for success.
Second, you must feel interpersonally connected with those who lead you or those you lead. Think of it as “friends don’t let friends down” and that connection is critical to trust. But most importantly, this isn’t just about a leadership team, it is about how each and every one of us show up in all aspects of our life. It is what strengthens our networks and builds us to make the most impact. It turns out that over fifty percent of a person’s success is having a diverse and open network and the way to build this is to exude the two characteristics of trust.
In everything we do at Soligent, and we are not perfect, we are constantly working to build and reinforce our trust internally as we support each other, give love, and then bring that competence and love to our customers. Our purpose is to make a positive impact on our community and the world, and help give our customers the tools, resources, and support to go grow their business and leave the world a better place.
