Why Leaders Can't Earn Trust

For leaders to be effective, they must be trusted. It's only natural, therefore, that they try to earn trust. Mike's latest podcast explains why the goal of earning trust is impossible.

People either trust us or they don't. Trust, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder. And we can no more compel people to trust us than we can compel them to think that we're beautiful.

What we can do, as Mike explains, is to be so trustworthy in our conduct that we make it easy for people to invest their trust in us.
