In my personal experience, it is CREDIBILITY.
How do you build it? By consistently honoring commitments and by being inspirational, humble, and servant.
As a result of that, people trust you, support you, and strive to deliver on time and in full.
I am grateful to all the leaders I have met, known, and worked with, who taught me how to build credibility and strive for excellence.
They made a difference in my life and in my career and my thoughts go first of all to my parents who were truly inspirational, humble, and servant.
Who are the leaders who have made a difference in your career and in your life?
